With less than a week to go to the 2015 White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) on July 13, enthusiasm is building. This White House Conference promises to be an extraordinary event, with watch parties participating from homes, community centers, and libraries in every state. We hope that you’re planning to get involved by watching the livestream and engaging online as the President and other senior Administration officials headline this once-a-decade forum.
The White House Conference on Aging is working with older adults, families, caregivers, advocates, community leaders, and experts in the aging field to hold watch parties across the country to make this the largest White House Conference on Aging to date. With people participating far and wide, we plan to make the day interactive and engaging for those tuning in online.
We encourage all organizations hosting events—whether public or private—to register their Watch Party. By registering, watch party hosts will receive the latest information about the July 13 Conference and a rundown of the best ways to submit your questions, comments and stories. Public watch parties will be posted on the Conference website once confirmed. Already, more than 85 public watch parties have been organized.
The White House Conference on Aging is having a national conversation about how to best address the changing aging landscape in the coming decade. We need your voice as part of our dialogue and discussion. Host and register your watch party and be part of history-in-the-making.
