The 2023 Age+Action Conference will be held in person on June 12-13, 2023, in Arlington, Virginia and virtually on June 20-21, 2023. You have the option to register for in-person and virtual, or virtual only. This national event brings together hundreds of professionals who are dedicated to ensuring every person has the resources to age well.
Sign up to join us at AgeAction.org. You will receive emails closer to the conference dates with further details, including how to access the virtual platform. The in-person dates require you to travel to Arlington, Virginia, but the virtual conference experience will be available from the comfort of your home or office.
Yes, grant funding allocated for the conference can be used to register for the in-person and virtual events. The in-person event satisfies the requirement to attend one grantee meeting per grant year. Funding allocated for travel and hotel accommodations can be used to support other grant needs or to register additional participants for the virtual conference.
The registration rate to attend the in-person event is $500. However, there are many ways to save:
If you are a Senior Center professional, you may be eligible for a Senior Center scholarship. Scholarships will be available in January 2023. If you want to register before January, please select “check” as your payment method. If you are eligible for a Senior Center scholarship, we will contact you with a special code, so you will not have to pay. If you have any questions about Senior Center scholarships, please contact Dianne Stone.

We can accept in-person payments by credit card or check. Cash payments will not be accepted.
The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is taking safety at our event seriously. We have implemented the following measures to promote the health and well-being of attendees and staff. All attendees are expected to consider the well-being of themselves and those around them. This includes:
While we do not intend to require masks or proof of vaccination, we do expect all attendees to make a personal commitment to ensuring they are not putting themselves or others in danger of illness. We are a community and will rely on our community members to ensure the safety of the group. We will follow all local Washington, DC travel advisory guidelines.
NCOA is committed to building an environment of wellness and will be providing hand sanitizer throughout event venues, particularly in high-traffic and food/beverage service areas. As the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe.
We will communicate reminders from CDC and local authorities, so individuals can make informed decisions. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this and ask that you check back here for updates.
The dress code is business casual. We encourage you to bring a sweater or jacket with you since the meeting rooms are air conditioned and can be chilly.
NCOA will host networking breakfast and lunch events on June 12 and 13. Appetizers will be served during the Opening and Closing Receptions.
