Senior Advocacy Training!
On behalf of the Area Agency on Aging of Dane County, senior adults are invited to participate in the 2018 Senior Advocacy Training (SAT) which will be held on three consecutive Tuesdays--31 July, and 7 & 14 August 2018--at the AAA/ADRC office (2865 N Sherman Ave, Madison, WI 53704). The three sessions will run from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm with a final session scheduled to occur at the Dane County Budget Hearing (on a date to be determine in September) at the Alliant Energy Center. A $10 fee is requested to cover all three classroom sessions, but this can be waived if it creates any barrier to your participation.
More information about the program is provided to give you an idea of the guest speakers for this informative, interactive program. This includes an agenda and application form. The deadline to register is Friday, July 27, 2018.
Please consider attending to learn or sharpen your skills as an effective senior adult advocate. If you are interested in attending or have questions about the training, please contact:
