ARE YOU AGE WAVE READY? MOVING FORWARD WITH THE BOOMERS
Over the next decade, museums will be challenged to change their strategies and staff and volunteer management to prepare for an aging population. Learn about research and planning in areas like the Richmond Region to become ‘Age Wave’ ready, and how communities can work together to meet the needs of a changing demographic. We will discover through interesting research and interactive discussions how museums can engage an aging population plus build stronger boards, volunteers, and member base.
*A special invitation to workshop attendees: The day’s host site, Monticello, will be offering free guided tours of Thomas Jefferson’s iconic home to all participants following the workshop. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot!
