ASA Members It’s Your Time
If you are a member of the American Society on Aging (ASA) it’s time to submit your proposal. Next year our annual conference is in San Francisco on March 26-29, 2018. With this in mind now is the time to write your submission and highlight your work. Again our conference is an opportunity to inspire others with your innovative policies, programs, and practices. In addition, submit your business models, and learning across the field of aging and related disciplines. For these reasons, I encourage you to submit your proposal before June 30th.
You Are A Public Speaker
When it comes to public speaking practice will make you a confident speaker. What better place than among your peers to polish your skills? In fact, if you begin practicing your public speaking skills now by March 2018 you will be a seasoned speaker. If you are not convinced visit a local Toastmasters International Club. This organization provides a collegial atmosphere transforming members into confident public speakers.
