The mission of the Aging in Place Business Network (AIPBN) is to provide education about local businesses and services that support personal choice and vitality in the second half of life, and to provide a forum to develop relationships with the members of the round table who serve in that community.

Who is the AIPBN?

The Chamber Aging in Place Business Network (formerly Senior Business Round Table) is composed of businesses and organizations that provide products or services which enable and support their clients who are choosing to “age in the place of their choice.”  The group’s meetings and activities provide opportunities for members that serve the 50+ age market to work together to educate themselves and their clients of the diverse public and private programs and services in our area that may benefit clients, their families and caregivers, and the greater community.

AIPBN as a Resource

AIPBN participants are dedicated to serving their clients, informed about others who serve, and willing to educate others.  Therefore they are a rich resource for consumers, caregivers, families, and other service providers.  To learn more about the services of any AIPBN participant or for advice on matters of interest for people over 50 years of age, contact the member using the information provided in this section, or contact any member of the AIPBN Executive Committee.

AIPBN Group Meetings

The AIPBN meets monthly on the first Friday of each month from 9:00am – 10:30am at Our Lady of Peace, unless otherwise noted.

For specific meeting details, refer to the Chamber calendar.  Meetings are free of charge. Chamber members are welcome and encouraged to attend the AIPBN meetings. Non-Chamber members – both service providers and consumers – are welcome to attend two meetings before becoming Chamber members.

The purpose of AIPBN meetings is to educate the group about topics that will serve their clients or their practices and to learn more about the services that other members offer.  Meetings are structured but are collaborative and informal; they are a place for us to learn from and enjoy the fellowship of each other.  Attendees regularly refer clients between each other based on the trust built during these interactions.

Speaking at an AIPBN Meeting

There are two speaking opportunities at each AIPBN meeting:  a ten-minute “Member Spotlight” section where an AIPBN member describes their services, and a 25-minute section in which a speaker educates the group about a topic of interest.  If you would like to request to speak in either of these sections, contact Wendy Heifetz.

Announcements

Each AIPBN meeting includes a section for announcements. If you would like to submit an announcement for the meeting, contact Katie Caverly.
