ASA’s Corp of Accomplished Professionals (CAPs) was established in 2017 as a way to bring members together around a “common life stage” which includes those nearing the end of their careers, retired, working part-time, or something in between. The purpose of this new program, in line with ASA’s mission and Vision 2020 Strategic Plan, is to provide a home for accomplished professionals within ASA to stay connected to the field of aging and to one another, to enhance their professional and personal growth, and to enable them to use their talent and experience to give back to ASA and to its members.
CAPs has identified three initial areas of focus in which to organize their work:
- Experience of Retirement
- Giving Back to ASA and the Field
- Setting up a Consulting Practice/Work
Experience of Retirement
CAPs is a year-round program, with a learning symposium incorporated into each Aging in America Conference, sponsored web seminars and article contributions to Aging Today. In addition to periodic learning opportunities, the CAPs program will offer peer to peer networking as well as opportunities for seasoned professionals to work as thought partners with students and emerging professionals.
The work of CAPs is important and you are invited to join us. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
