If you're on our waitlist, you'll receive a list of resources and information on future events. We'll also live tweet Work@50+ on Saturday from @AARPCA. You can join the conversation using #workat50plus. Plus, in the coming weeks, we'll share highlights, videos, and resources from the conference right here on our blog.
