The 10th Annual Conference of the International Council on Active Aging will take place November 29 through December 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Attendees will be able to choose from among several educational sessions on active aging, the aging process, and disease prevention.

The ICAA Conference is the active-aging venue for professional development and informal learning. Sectors represented at the conference include the retirement, assisted living, recreation, fitness, rehabilitation and wellness fields, as well as government and academia. Connect with colleagues across the active-aging spectrum and build your knowledge network. 

As an active-aging educator and advocate, ICAA has advised organizations and governmental bodies including the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration on Aging, the National Institute on Aging (one of the National Institutes of Health), Canada’s Special Senate Committee on Aging, and the British Columbia ministries of Health, and Healthy Living and Sport.

ICAA has also undertaken scores of initiatives with the help of partners. Today, the association has thriving educational partnerships or relationships with, among others, AARP, American Council on Exercise, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, and the National Area Agencies on Aging.  As of January 2010, the ICAA membership has grown to more than 8,200 organizations that manage, own or operate more than 40,000-plus locations. The ICAA Network extends to 37 countries around the globe.
