A major, ongoing Foundation initiative is the operation of a seminar series designed to present topics of interest to America’s seniors. Throughout the year, more than a dozen separate sessions are presented at no cost to the public, covering topics ranging from benefits-related seminars to workshops on technical issues important to seniors.
Since launching this seminar series in 2014, our offerings have addressed these topics:
One thing the Foundation prides itself on is that we seek out efforts that will allow us to contribute to the welfare of our constituents with limited cash outlay on the part of the Foundation. Wherever possible, of course, we will be seeking and applying for grant opportunities from various businesses, foundations, and governmental organizations to defray the costs. In this way, we can progressively build our brand—the AMAC Foundation brand—in small increments, while building resources in the background for the major initiatives of the future. And, while our initial intent is to offer these projects locally in our Central Florida operating area, we have an ongoing objective of using live streaming technology via the Foundation website and the world wide web to propagate the information across the country. Likewise, we routinely record and archive portions of the material for on-demand access through the Foundation’s website.
Another facet of our approach to serving our constituency is the use of webinar technology to deliver educational sessions. We piloted this approach in mid-2018 with satisfactory results, and plan to expand the use of this technology in the future. The webinar sessions we conduct are recorded and made available for on-demand access for those unable to participate in the live session.
