ELDER CARE – PROMOTING AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF THE ELDERLY

Date: Friday, December 2, 2016

Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Registration begins at 8:00 am 

Older Americans are among the most enthusiastic beneficiaries of the modern digital revolution. Computers and smartphones enable the elderly, regardless of mobility, to keep in touch with far-flung relatives, order life-sustaining goods from online merchants and stay abreast of the latest news.

But the same space-conquering technology that empowers so many older Americans also can increase their vulnerability to global criminals who attempt to steal money, passwords and identities from the unprepared.

The Center for Leadership is offering a three-hour seminar to instruct elder care providers, attorneys and family members how to forewarn and forearm older Americans against computer and telephone scams.  The seminar will feature leaders from law enforcement, the legal profession and social service organizations who will discuss strategies laypeople and experts can use to protect the elderly from digital predators.

CYBER SAFETY AND SOCIAL MEDIA – WHAT TODAY’S DIGITAL CITIZEN NEEDS TO KNOW

Date: Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Registration begins at 8:00 am 

Social Media has empowered millions of Americans.  People who once complained about the media have become the media, trading personal, local and even national and international news, photographs and videos with friends, family and customers across the globe.

But opportunities created by and for people of goodwill have not been overlooked by the less altruistic.  Bullies, sexual predators, scam artists and overbearing marketers have found their way into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media outlets.

The Center for Leadership is offering a three-hour seminar to help lawyers, parents and education professionals navigate the social media’s channels and shoals.  Expert professionals from the law, education and digital technology will offer the latest tools, strategies and practices to anyone eager to prevent social media abuses and promote safe, effective and positive use of transformative, collective communications.
