The Annual Meeting is a celebration of the support that the Coalition’s membership provides to older adults in North Carolina. It brings together approximately 150 leaders from all aging industries to enjoy a keynote speaker highlighting aging issues and honor Pioneer Award recipients. It is a reflection on the past year and a discussion about the future.
