This interactive pre-conference will provide participants with essential knowledge and leadership skills to successfully manage their geriatrics programs and grow in the field.  Through problem solving activities and small group discussions, attendees will learn how to successfully fundraise and practice their newly acquired skills. Participants will have the opportunity to consult with experts and discuss challenges in small groups to work through authentic scenarios. Session leaders will structure discussion to ensure key points are made in all groups and the groups will share what they have learned. We also will provide tools and frameworks to guide participants’ learning before and during the session and to help them to apply these approaches after the session.
