Peer Networking Groups

Access the LeadingAge Network of Peers & Partners

LeadingAge is strengthening and expanding their member networks, which are a valuable way to connect with like-minded peers. And we’ve just launched eight new peer groups: listserv-driven groups focused on key areas of interest for members. These groups are email-based and are intended to be a place to ask a question, share a program or practice, and learn from other colleagues in the field of aging services. Take a look and sign up for one or more!
