“The Network in Aging is a long standing, vital organization which has a special place in the community among professionals,” said Kristin Surdej, current Network in Aging President.  “Our organization has grown over the years and has become eclectic in its membership.  Members are from for profit and non for profits alike.  Membership includes those in the field of aging and others from organization or businesses who serve those in the aging population.”

Once a month, select member agencies of the Network in Aging collaborate to develop a themed “Network with the Network” event. These complimentary events are designed for members to meet regularly in a variety of settings and are also open to area professionals who want to learn more about the sponsoring organizations and the Network.
