Commission Focus Topics

2022 Innovation through Connection Discussion Series

Each year, the Commission on Aging invites experts to join moderated discussions regarding a specific topic throughout the year. Members discuss the topic with their guests and answer questions from the audience.

Following the commission’s 2021 focus on the road to recovery from COVID-19, The Clark County Commission on Aging is focusing this year on “Innovation through Connection", and the need to connect people to resources, to information and to each other on a personal level. These connections have been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic and will remain a challenge into the future. Most providers understand that the functioning of our communities has changed forever, and this is influencing the way in which organizations and providers deliver their services.

With the idea of effective connectivity at the forefront of the conversation, the commission created a community member survey meant to reveal connectivity issues that diverse members of our county are currently facing. Analysis of the survey results are underway. The commission hopes the information obtained from this survey and the 2022 commission meetings will spur innovative thinking around the ways in which organizations and aging adults connect with and to one another. 

Meetings are at 4:30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month. Please visit the meetings page for information on each month's moderated discussion and for ways to join the meeting.
