Innovation through Connection Discussion Series

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. Topics for individual meetings will be added below in the future.

Meetings are at 4:30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings are currently in an online format. Please visit the meetings page for information on how to join the meeting.

The commission invites experts to join a moderated discussion on specific topics. Members discuss the topic with their guests and answer questions from the audience. One community program will also be highlighted each month to increase public awareness of existing resources in the county.

The commission is currently working to determine the schedule for 2022 topics.  Check back soon for more information.
