Our 6th annual Homecoming Week is happening May 26-June 1, 2013. 

Each year, our Homecoming Week is a chance to remind your communities and yourselves of the contribution your organization makes. 

This year's theme is: Expanding the Possibilities. 

Our 2013 planning guide can help you come up with program ideas, invite elected officials and publicize in your community. 

If you are planning a Homecoming event, please let us know. If you already held your event, please let us know how it went. We will promote events on LeadingAge.org and through our social media channels. 

Once your event has occurred, please let us know how it went so we can feature it on our website.
