On May 5, 2015, The Conkling Center was presented with the 2015 Tri-County United Way Leadership Award for enhancing the quality of life of seniors through thoughtful programming, transportation services and community collaboration. This was quite an honor. We will continue to work hard to improve and enhance our programs for the community.

Collaboration with other individuals, organizations, and institutions to establish a forum to act as a source of information to meet the needs of the community's aging population.
Consultation with other organizations to determine appropriate content and methods for the delivery of continuing education seminars to address the needs of seniors.
Presentation of quality training and continuing education seminars to address the needs of the senior population for seniors, their families, and those persons employed by, or involved with, the provision of services to our communities' seniors.
