Register Today for the 2015 Meals on Wheels Annual Conference and Expo!
Get a jump on 2015's premier gathering for senior nutrition professionals now and receive early-bird pricing!
September 1-3, 2015
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort
Earlier this year in Scottsdale, hundreds of senior nutrition professionals came together to Reinvent the Wheels. We explored new concepts, learned about new tools and ignited a movement to reenergize the solid foundation and name recognition that Meals on Wheels has earned nationally and that will support your program’s successful future.
Here are some testimonials from last year’s Conference:
“This is by far the best conference to attend. The networking opportunities and learning opportunities are greater than at other conferences. I always have things that I can bring back to staff and implement in my program.”
“…the educational value of this conference is worth every cent. I learned a ton of great stuff.”
“This was my first time attending. I was energized by the presenters and I was inspired by the attendees. Attending the event is a MUST going forward for me!”
Come join us in Orlando and be part of this movement!
Events & Courses
The 2015 Meals on Wheels Annual Conference and Expo will connect you with the experts, colleagues and partners who will expand our thinking, teach new skills, offer new perspectives and share plans for a positive future. Through three days of truly immersive speakers, courses and networking, we will focus on the areas of most interest and value to you and your organization.
Sign up today for the 2015 Meals on Wheels Annual Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL, September 1-3. Discounts are available to those who register early and an additional discount is applied when you attend with one or more of your colleagues. Association Members save even more!
