FPN Member Webinar
Florida's Silver Tsunami: The Wave of Demographic Changes and Philanthropy's Response

Date Rescheduled
April 26, 2013
10:00 - 11:00 am ET

Who Should Attend: Staff and board members for foundations and other grantmakers. The meeting is open to FPN members only.
Cost: No charge.
To Register: Register Online.
Presenter: Dr. James H. Johnson, Jr., Kenan Distinguished Professor Entrepreneurship and Strategy, Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

In the FPN member webinar Dr. James H. Johnson will follow-up his presentation at FPN's 2013 Statewide Summit on Philanthropy with an in-depth look at Florida's current demographics and projections for the future, with a specific emphasis on the aging population in Florida. Florida is set to have the oldest population in America, combined with a shifting demographic that is more diverse and heavily immigrant. What does this mean for the tax base, the employment base, the service economy, education and health care in Florida? Where will the wave take us? How will this impact our communities and our grantmaking? Where should philanthropy invest now to prepare for the not too distant future?

Dr. Johnson will answer these critical questions for funders during the webinar. He was the highest-rated speaker at FPN's 2013 Summit. Whether or not you heard him at the Summit, you won't want to miss this important follow-up conversation.
