The National District Attorneys Association/National College of District Attorneys (NDAA), the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), and the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice (OVW), are pleased to announce a training opportunity on elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The conference, Addressing Abuse as America Ages: Enhancing the safety of elder abuse survivors, will begin Wednesday, September 30, 2009, and end Thursday, October 1. The course will be held at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The purpose of the conference is to strengthen the capacity of domestic violence and sexual assault programs, the justice system, adult protective services, the aging network and other organizations to respond effectively to older victims; hold elder abuse offenders accountable; and work collaboratively. Participants will work for two days in plenary sessions, workshops, and large groups to gain or renew the strength to promote victim safety and offender accountability. Any advocate who works in the fields of domestic violence, sexual assault, or elder abuse; criminal justice professionals; aging network providers; adult protective services workers; and survivors of elder abuse are all welcome and encouraged to attend. Participants from all 50 states, especially those representing underserved populations, are encouraged to apply.

No fee will be charged for the conference, but participants will be expected to pay their own travel, hotel, per diem, expenses, etc. OVW grant funds designated for training purposes may be allowed to be used for this purpose, if a program’s OVW grant manager specifically approves such use. (The hotel arrangements provide for a rate of only $130/night, the Federal per diem rate.)
