The 2018 Call for Workshops for the 40th Summer Institute on Aging is open! The 2018 conference sponsored by WVU School of Social Work will be held June 12-14, 2018 at Lakeview Resort & Conference Center in Morgantown, WV. The theme is “Adventures in Aging: Building Wisdom, Well Being and Wonder”
Below is some information about how to submit a proposal. The website http://sioa.wvu.edu has a lot of information about past conferences (see previous brochures under “conference archive”). In terms of our audience, we usually have mostly social workers, but also some nurses, licensed professional counselors, activities directors in nursing homes, and family caregivers. We offer the conference as part of an elective course in the WVU Gerontology Certificate program, so we also have undergraduate and graduate students in attendance at the Institute.
Proposals (90 minutes or 3 hours) will be accepted online at https://sioa.wvu.edu/2018-conference/presenters/ – the deadline is January 15, 2018.
Please share with interested persons! For additional information or questions, contact me at email@example.com or 304-293-3280.

This is the third and final webinar in our 2016-2017 series. WVNEC has joined the 21st Century with its NEW online registration process! It allows you to register for any of our upcoming programs online. It provides you with the convenience of paying from the privacy of your home or office on a secure website. One of the benefits of the online registration is it generates a confirmation/receipt for your registration immediately upon payment. Because we want to send handout materials out prior to the program, we will need to close registration 48 hours prior to the event. Anyone wishing to participate on the July 26 webinar will need to register in advance by noon on Monday, July 24. No registration will be accepted after the deadline. Continuing education credit is included in the registration fee. With this new feature, all registration must occur online.
On the main course webpage “Click Here for More Information” for the program you want to register for and then click on “Register for the Event.” Fill out the online registration form then submit the form to be taken to the eCommerce site for payment completion. Make sure to indicate your membership status and if you would like to receive continuing education credit for attending the event. The submit button will take you to the payment page. NOTE: Registration email may arrive in your SPAM folder. Please check your SPAM/Clutter folder before contacting us. Instructions to access the webinar and handout materials will be emailed to participants by July 25 to the email address that was provided on the registration form.
