Avenidas hosts Boomer Bootcamp conference on Saturday, Feb. 7.

What do adults ages 55-70 have in common with ostriches? The fact that they all want to just bury their heads in the sand and not think about getting older!

That is a critical mistake and one of the main reasons Avenidas is hosting the “Boomer Bootcamp: Firming Up Your Financial Fitness” conference to be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 7 at the new Mitchell Park Community Center (3700 Middlefield Road).

This is the fourth annual conference and will feature a keynote address, conference materials and giveaways, a choice of three workshops and closing address, as well as a fresh box lunch and espresso coffee cart. The cost to attend is $60 per person.

According to Gallup’s annual Economy and Personal Finance poll, a majority of people, 59 percent, worry about not having enough money for their golden years. If this resonates at all, then this conference is a must.

Experts in a variety of fields will discuss such topics as:

  • Retirement Readiness
  • Social Security Strategies
  • Health Insurance Costs
  • Taxes
  • Investments and Cash Flow
  • Housing
  • Legal/Trust Issues
  • And more!

“Most people are reluctant to look ahead to later life, especially if they think that there is nothing they can do about getting older,” states Richard Adler, distinguished fellow, The Institute of the Future. “Looking ahead can be a powerful means for anticipating both challenges and opportunities and pre-paring for them in advance,” Adler points out. “The really good news is that many previous models of aging are no longer accurate, and we are at a time of considerable creative excitement around reinventing expectations about later life.”

Adler, who will be the conference’s keynote speaker, will explore some of the “zones of innovation” where new pathways and new models for successful aging are being created.

“It is not your grandfather’s retirement anymore,” he laughingly states.
