    Welcome to the new SAGE website!  We hope that you will find this new and improved site more informative, more functional, and more engaging. 

    This website redesign honors the history and heritage of this twenty-one year old organization.  We are grateful to those pioneering visionaries who saw the need for this passionately collaborative organization.  It is our hope that we can build on the legacy upon which the organization was founded and built.

    While we honor our heritage, we are excited to look into the future.  As we announced earlier this year, SAGE has hired a new administrative assistant, Lori Bridgeman.  Lori brings to the organization, administrative depth and creativity like no other.  She will support the SAGE officers and board of directors in our efforts to build membership, and more importantly, member value. 

    Speaking of member value, please make sure and consider registering for this year’s Environments for Aging Conference (EFA16).  This is an amazing conference that attracts over 700 attendees, including architects, interior designers, senior living providers, regulators, researchers and industry representatives…basically the make-up of our membership!  Emerald Expositions is our new partner in this conference and based on our planning work with their team, this event will be bigger and better than ever.  As a SAGE member, you will receive a 10% discount on the conference registration.  This virtually pays for your membership!  Please go to http://www.environmentsforaging.com/conference/home for more information. 

    Finally, SAGE would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Anjum Alden with Anara Consulting for her amazing work on the website rebuild. It was a huge task to not only create an entirely new look, feel, and website navigation, but also to migrate our membership database over to this new platform. We couldn’t have done it without her, and I do not hesitate to recommend Anara Consulting for any website or blog needs to take your brand to the next level. I also would like to personally thank our former board member and secretary, Rob Pfauth, for the countless hours he dedicated to making this new site a reality. 

    If you have any comments, concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact either Lori Bridgeman (lori@sagefederation.org) or me.
