This is a friendly reminder that community/human services organizations, nonprofits, local government agencies, and other relevant stakeholders are invited to participate in FREE regional workshops on Business Acumen/Grant Writing and/or Elder Justice, sponsored by the Association on Aging in New York, in partnership with the New York State Office for Aging. A complimentary lunch will be provided at all sessions.
