What is The AiTC?
The Aging in Texas Conference (AiTC) is an annual gathering of individuals who work within the aging community. Designed for professionals from a range of community-based settings, the AiTC supports professionals in the field of aging with the most current research, unparalleled trainings, and innovative tools and resources to create excellence in service delivery. With educational programming covering a variety of areas, this conference is beneficial to everyone involved with caring for Texas seniors, from administrators to service providers.
In 2017— Aging without Limits!
Building on the momentum from previous conferences and highlighting the benefits of keeping seniors connected and engaged within their communities, the theme of the 2017 AiTC is, “Aging without Limits!” As Texans continue to live longer, healthier lives, providers and professionals must continue to ensure older Texans have the opportunity to live with dignity and participate fully in life. The 2017 AiTC will focus on ways professionals within the aging services community can incorporate best practices and innovative programming to reinforce Texas’ strength in collaboration by promoting connectivity and to assist our state’s growing senior population. It is through an educated workforce and public that we can ensure older Texans continue to live and age well. The AiTC is hosted by the:
- Texas Association of Area Agencies on Aging (T4A)
- Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC)
- Texas Association of Regional Councils (TARC)
