Minnesota PGA Visits LeadingAge Institute
The annual LeadingAge Minnesota Institute is the top networking conference for adult services providers. This is a three-day event with educational opportunities, special events, such as our golf station, and the ability to network with other adult services.
“This is an event that has over 4,000 professionals attending,” said Jenny Prosser, Vice President of Conferences and Sales for LeadingAge Minnesota. “Down in the exhibit hall we have 210 exhibitors that provide services and products to nursing homes and senior housing units throughout the state of Minnesota.”
The LeadingAge Minnesota Institute is the largest of its kind in the Upper Midwest. Typically, the Expo sells out in the fall of each year with many top-tier organizations wanting to meet members of LeadingAge.
The Section was able to bring equipment and inflatables down to the RiverCentre and give many of these LeadingAge members their first taste of the sport of golf. The reactions were priceless as many couldn’t hold back their smiles as they hit countless shots at the inflatables.
“Golf is a great sport to do for a lifetime and a great way to keep people active,” Prosser emphasized. “It’s an opportunity to network and this provides them the opportunity to learn the game and enhance their skills.”
