The Generations United conference kicked off with two great pre-conferences on grandfamilies and intergenerational programming. It was so wonderful to see so many friendly faces, both first time conference attendees and veterans of the GU conference.
We began the day with a great presentation from Shirley Sagawa on successful non-profits. Later, we heard from Michael Marcus from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation about building support for your intergenerational program. I’d like to say a special thank you to all the speakers and presenters today for making the first day such a success.
Tomorrow, we are going to Capitol Hill to help spread the message about the value of intergenerational policies and practices. Visit http://www.gu.org/PolicyAgenda111.asp

As a reminder, we’ll be providing updates all week on the GU blog and our new pages on Twitter at www.twitter.com/gensunited and Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/generations-united76354509988
