The 2010 Southeast Association for Area Agencies on Aging (SE4A) Annual Conference was held in Louisville, KY, September 26-29 at the Galt House Hotel and Conference Center. SE4A was formed in 1973 as a regional advocacy association. Member states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Each year SE4A conducts an annual training conference to address national, regional and local issues regarding the needs of older adults.

The 2010 Conference held in Louisville, KY was the most well attended SE4A Conference in years, with over 1,000 attendees. The theme, "Champions of Aging: Fighting for the Future," was chosen to represent the challenges and solutions within the aging network. Sessions provided innovative ideas and information in the areas of administration and management, legal/advocacy issues, workforce issues, health and wellness, and information and benefits.

Participants not only worked hard during the four day conference, but also played hard as well! Keynote speakers included Rasheda Ali, author, Mitchell Tolle, artist, and Nick Clooney, reporter. Each of these speakers has lifelong ties to Kentucky. A special reception and private touring of the Muhammad Ali Center was held for the conference. And a "Night at the Races," complete with horse racing and Derby Hat contests, provided fun memories for everyone!

Thanks to all of the presenters, sponsors, exhibitors, advertisers and staff who worked tirelessly to make this event successful.
