Today's Senior Centers are charged with addressing ever-increasing demands: satisfying the wide gap of programming desired by their diverse consumer base, adopting evidence-based practices, meeting adequate yearly progress goals, managing the requirements of second-language and special-needs participants, and remaining current on the increasing amount of aging research. This is where professional development comes in. The New Hampshire Association of Senior Centers (NHASC) is dedicated to fostering the exchange of information, ideas, programs and education between senior center professionals.

On the third day, our partners, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA), will plan a day of programming that will be of interest to senior center professionals. There will also be a pre-conference intensive on Sept. 25, by invitation only, for our annual National Accreditation peer reviewer training and refresher course.
