Monthly Marketing Update

Happy New Year!  We are starting off the new year with a bang… the guide continues to grow, website traffic is increasing, and more providers are posting events and using as their resource. Thank you for using the guide and website, and for sharing a comprehensive and unbiased resource with the families you serve.

We started a new Senior Service Network meeting for providers in Linn and Benton counties. The meeting will be held on the 1st Tuesday each month at Samaritan Albany General Hospital, please help spread the word (details below).  

Please save the date for the next Salem Hospital Case Manager Resource Fair on March 14th (details below). Registration is currently open for Retirement Connection sponsors and CEU registrations are a priority, the registration will open up to other providers in a few short weeks.

Additional Resources

There are so many resources included in Retirement Connection, that often a few may slip past you and may not be noticed. Did you know that the guide also includes:

Attorneys & Elder Law and Hearing Resources


Nuggets of Knowledge

"Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes."

It is challenging to be all of these, and an even bigger challenge to know when is the right time for each. It is incredibly gratifying when you have the courage to stand alone, then turn to see so many others standing with you.
