The Network’s mission is to help our members by providing opportunities for resource exchange, professional development and interdisciplinary collaboration through networking events, educational programs, strategic partnerships and promoting public awareness of the organization and its mission.
The Network in Aging’s office is located on the Main Street Campus of the State University of New York at Buffalo in Kimball Tower. The Network has been hosted by UB since its inception in 1981. Much of the work of the Network, including most committee meetings, is done at sites convenient to the members. Lisa Boron, the Network’s Coordinator, works out of the Kimball Tower office.
All members may participate on committees, may be nominated to the Board of Directors and will receive the Network Newsletter which includes a calendar of events listing workshops, educational seminars, conferences and other activities related to aging and long-term care and will receive discounts on all Network events.

Each committee sets its own meeting schedule. Committee contact information is listed on this link: List of Committees . What’s involved with being a committee member?
