The 2019 IG Symposium: Keynote Speaker Announced & Registration Is Open

Mike Festa, State Director, AARP Massachusetts

Bridges Together Inc. is pleased to announce that Mike Festa will be the keynote speaker at the 2019 IG Symposium  which will be held on Sept. 20, 2019 at Lasell University in Newton. Mike is the State Director for AARP Massachusetts. Under Mike’s leadership, AARP Massachusetts coordinates and supports all of the age-friendly communities in the state. At the Symposium, Mike will speak about applying an intergenerational lens to the age-friendly domains and give examples of Massachusetts communities that are doing so. Following Mike’s presentation, attendees will be able to learn from community leaders who are successfully incorporating intergenerational programs with the different domains.

The theme for this year’s IG Symposium is: Developing Your Toolbox. Vision and understanding are critical to IG success. The afternoon round-tables will focus on skill-building like developing leadership teams, addressing aging and fundraising. Throughout the day, attendees will gather other important tools like networking with colleagues and increasing their repertoire of ice breakers. Everyone will receive handouts from the two dozen presenters. Morning refreshments and lunch will also be provided.

Registration is now open! Last year, the Symposium was sold-out so get your ticket today!
