The annual Herb Shore Silent Auction and EIA Wine Toss are offered to support EIA scholarships. Both events will be held during the 2017 LeadingAge Texas Annual Conference & Solutions EXPO at the Hilton Austin Downtown:
- Wine Toss: May 21 (featured at the Kick-off Reception)
- Silent Auction: May 22-23
Support the professional development of individuals in the aging services field in Texas by making a monetary donation, participating in the Wine Toss, and bidding on items in the Silent Auction!
What Is EIA?
The Educational Institute on Aging (EIA) is a 501(c)(3) subsidiary foundation of LeadingAge Texas that serves as a forum to promote accessible educational opportunities and professional development to LeadingAge Texas members.
Who Does EIA Help?
The proceeds from both events benefit EIA scholarships for LeadingAge Texas members to attend educational events throughout the year including the LeadingAge Texas Annual Conference & Solutions EXPO. Members who benefit from these scholarships include students working toward careers in the aging services field and individuals who are currently serving older Texans by working as certified nursing assistants (CNAs), nurses, social workers, and many other aging services disciplines.
Since the LeadingAge Texas membership is made up of not-for-profit aging services providers, some with tight budgets that might find difficulty in funding employees' professional development, EIA scholarships are a much-needed option benefiting individuals who devote their careers to serving the aging population. Opportunities for continuing education and professional growth are vital to retaining quality employees, encouraging future leaders in the field, and providing exceptional service to older Texans throughout the spectrum of care!
