The Seniors Access Conference is held every two years. The objective is to bring in keynote speakers that seniors may not otherwise be able to enjoy. It is also an opportunity for seniors to network and socialize and to put forward questions and issues that are important to them.  We also feature local experts and artists. Lunch and snacks are provided. We are grateful for all the community support in funding this conference.

The next Seniors Access Conference will be held on June 3rd 2023. More details, and a date when advance tickets will be on sale, will be released on our Home page as they become available.
