The Reinvention Convention:

A provocative series of discussions around aging
Co-founded by three well-known community organizations

Most people are aware that Sarasota County occupies a unique place among communities in the United States and around the world because of its demographics. However, while there is a large number of part and full-time residents over the age of 65 further uniquely the population is evenly split in thirds with one-third under the age of 35, one-third between 35-64, and that famous 65+ cohort. Because of that, the county is at the epicenter of a broad range of compelling age-related issues – all meaningful – that require care, attention and focus. It also is wonderfully age-balanced, with the human life cycle in community form.

The Mission

The Reinvention Convention is a provocative series of discussions around aging, designed to encourage thought leadership, change minds, and instigate action by providing a platform for discourse on compelling age-related issues.

Well-known Community Partners

Senior Friendship Centers, JFCS of the Suncoast and Plymouth Harbor represent a core consortium that have joined together to co-produce this 6-year series of conferences to discuss high-interest subjects. Each organization cares deeply about the issues impacting older adults and the community at large.
