NAAP 40th Annual Conference
Crown Plaza
Bloomington, MN
Located directly across from the Minneapolis Int’l Airport
April 5-8, 2022

Call for Presentations for the 2022 Conference are now OPEN.
Due Date:   October 1, 2021

 Selected speakers will be informed in October.


The NAAP Call for the 2022 Presentations are now open. Now more than ever knowledge is power. Did you or a colleague implement policies or procedures that increased involvement of meaningful moments or supported well-being of staff. Do you have a Best Practice strategy that you can share with other Activity Professionals? Perhaps you know someone who has expertise in a particular area of leadership, senior living? How about sharing this opportunity to your local state speakers so they can inspire NAAP members?

However, the best material comes from you, the NAAP affiliates, the front-line workers— the Activity Professionals. So, we encourage you, the NAAP member, to submit sessions to present.

DON’T miss this great opportunity to provide your knowledge to Activity Professionals from all over the United States and beyond. Submit your call for papers today or refer someone to the NAAP Board for us to follow up with. Thank you for your support.

From the evaluations received from our last conference (in 2019) the following session topics were suggested. While these are just suggestions, we know NAAP members are interested in these topics and we hope to be able to meet their needs – but we can only do it if we connect with individuals who can provide these sessions!

  • Anything focused on Independent Living residents and their activity needs
  • Anything focused on Adult Day clients and their activity needs
  • Religious Diversity
  • Strengthening Resident Councils or Resident Committees
  • Budgeting
  • Grant Writing/Fundraising
  • Public Relations
  • Covid-19 and its impact on the Activities Department
  • Marketing your department
  • Staff Training for both within your department and other departments

Remember that ALL session topics are welcome in the submission process. Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2021.  Accepted speakers will receive a discount to the Conference at a rate of $200 if received as an early-bird registration.  Complete the online form below.

The  40thannual conference will be held April 5-8, 2022 in Bloomington, MN, at the Crown Plaza. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
