LeadingAge Washington is seeking original, thought-provoking, forward thinking, session proposals that will enable our aging services providers to share creative approaches, innovative practices and emerging trends impacting our field. Submit your online proposal by February 1st!  

The Greater Good ~ Our world is complex, but our common goal is simple—we dedicate ourselves to creating positive change and improving the lives of older adults wherever they call home. As we focus on a wide and rapidly evolving range of issues—it’s more important than ever to harness the combined power of our mission driven LeadingAge professionals. That’s why aging services leaders from across our state will come together for our 72nd Annual Conference & EXPO – June (12)13-15, 2023. Across our education program, we’ll spend time talking about the critical issues and strategic priorities that matter to us most, and prominent experts will share their experience and vision that is certain to inspire us all. When you tour the EXPO, you’ll discover life-changing products and services, and during social events, you’ll build connections and camaraderie. This year will ignite your passion and your purpose to advance your mission for those you serve. Together we are stronger for The GREATER GOOD.

LeadingAge Washington is the opportunity to reconnect with our peers and their purpose; to hear from you – our industry experts in top notch education sessions.

In June we will ask our communities to come together for:

  • Uplifting, inspiring talks in our power-packed keynote lineup.
  • Education you can use now with carefully curated content.
  • Networking opportunities at fun social events.
  • New ways to find your next partner in our EXPO.
  • A renewing experience that you can share with your teams.


Keynote Guest Speaker: Denise Boudreau – President & Founder, DRIVE

Leading and Living Through Your Values

Who you are, what you hold dear, what upsets you, and what underlies your decisions as a leader are all connected to your personal values. The missed opportunity is, most people never take the time to learn what those precious and powerful intrinsic things are! In this session you will have the opportunity to do an introspective reflection on your very own personal values, and recognize how they influence your personal and professional endeavors including overcoming the current staffing crisis. You’ll learn practical strategies you can implement immediately to apply these values in your daily routines, allowing you to use them as a driving force and a personal true north star.
