Our biennial national conference offers community leaders and volunteers a dynamic opportunity to come together to learn, connect, inspire, and be inspired. And although the coronavirus pandemic has changed our plans to gather in person, we are coming together virtually for an impressive line up of timely and informative presentations. The best part is the all-inclusive price for everyone with your community nonprofit. This is your chance to connect with the network and move your mission forward to create a better today -- and tomorrow -- for older adults.  

Over the course of five days, we will explore timely topics to prepare for the new and existing challenges due to the pandemic and changes in the field of aging. Each day starts at 1:00 pm ET with a dynamic keynote and ends about 5:15 pm ET with small group discussions. We promise you'll discover something new! 

  • Day 1: Wednesday, October 21

  • Day 2: Friday, October 23

  • Day 3: Monday, October 26

  • Day 4: Wednesday, October 28

  • Day 5: Friday, October 30

This year we are encouraging more leaders with a single community Shepherd's Center or nonprofit to connect, learn, and share with colleagues around the network. With this virtual event, you'll discover:


  • MORE education  

  • MORE convenience

  • MORE networking

  • MORE value


We have one reasonable rate for the entire five-day event for everyone affiliated with your organization. The inclusive price of $155 covers staff, board, and volunteer leaders. Each person does need to register to receive the links for this virtual event.


But if it's just you, we have a single rate for one person of $75 for the entire five-day conference.

Not a member of the Shepherd's Centers Network? No problem -- we'd love to have you join us at the same great rate! We believe coming together during these uncertain times generates greater good.

Registration after October 15 does increase by $25.

We are not able to refund registration fees due to cancellation. But if you are unable to attend, we will gladly provide session recordings and handouts.  



A committed group of network peers is working hard to create an exception event focusing on issues that matter most. Call us with any suggestions or questions at 816-960-2022.
