Free Conference for Elder Network Professionals to be held May 12-13 in Williamsport and Scranton

Marshall, Parker and Associates free, half-day annual conference for elder networking professionals is set for May 10, 2102 in Williamsport and May 11, 2012 in Scranton. This is the 16th year for the Conference.

Attendees will get the opportunity to get updated on legal, financial and care issues affecting seniors. Each event also provides the opportunity for you to network with over 200 of your colleagues, have a nice breakfast, and get free or low cost continuing education credits. There is no charge to attend this half-day, morning conference designed specifically for legal/financial professionals and healthcare/social service professionals.

This year’s Marshall, Parker Professional Update will feature a full line-up of great speakers and special break-out sessions. 

Start the morning off with breakfast and visit the exhibitors in the lobby from 7:30 AM until 8:00 AM. Then learn from Marshall Parker & Associates' elder law attorneys, Matthew Parker and Kevin Grebas, about the latest legal changes affecting your senior clients. Topics for the session will include an update on Death Taxes, changes in pooled special needs trusts, nursing home arbitration agreements and the state's caregiver support program.

Kristie Patton, MSW from the National Council on Aging in Washington, DC will provide the keynote address this year. She will cover critical issues affecting seniors from a macro level and show us how organizations like the NCOA are working with state government agencies and community-based aging services providers to implement evidence-based health programs.

New to this year’s line-up will be specific break-out sessions to finish the morning. Attendees can choose to attend the Legal/Financial Session or the Healthcare/Social Services Session.

Cathy Snyder from ING and Steve Nezas from the Hartford will tag-team the Legal/Financial Session. Cathy will discuss the newly-finalized 401K disclosure requirements and Steve will present on the most recent changes in Social Security. 

Cindy Keith from M.I.N.D in Memory Care will provide the Healthcare/Social Services Session. As a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Cindy will discuss the liabilities facilities and professionals face when working with dementia patients and then walk you through strategies to minimize that liability in the future.
