National Village Conference a huge success!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That is all we can say to the planners, presenters, sponsors and attendees at this year's National Village Gathering. We've had overwhelmingly positive feedback, which is great considering that VtV Network went through a leadership change just prior to the conference.
Find Conference Materials on the VtV Network Website
VtV Network members can go the the Conference page on our website and click the "Conference Materials" button to view many of the presentations. We are working on getting any missing presentations.

Awesome Village Videos!
Many Villages have videos that explain who they are and what they do. Here are a few examples of nice videos sent in to Village to Village Network recently from some of our members.
Love Living at Home out of Ithaca, NY, sent this nice video where the founders talk about the thought process that went into forming their Village. We're so glad they did!
At Home in Greenwich out of Greenwich, CT, sent this nice explanatory video. Very nice production on this one! They have titles and B-roll and just really nice editing. Great job!
Neighbors Network out of Maitland, FL, sent a great video that gives some really nice examples of what Villages do for their members. Keep up the good work!
North Jersey Villages of Bergen and Passaic County, NJ, had an opportunity to do a TV interview recently, and they were so kind to send us the video! If your Village is ever highlighted in your local media, send us a link so we can share with everyone!
If you have or know of a Village video that you would like to share, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post it in the newsletter!
Join a landmark study on Life Plan Communities
Your community has an opportunity to participate in a national longitudinal study that will determine the impact of living in a Life Plan Community on residents’ health and well-being. (First-year findings spell good news for residents!)
Mather LifeWays Institute is seeking Life Plan Communities to join the 80 sites currently participating in the Age Well Study, and add to the more than 5,000 resident-respondents. These additional communities will participate in the remainder of the study starting in 2019.
As a participating organization, you’ll receive an individual report summarizing your unique resident data as well as a copy of the comprehensive report.
Interested in participating? Review details on their website, then sign up by Friday, November 30.
The Age Well Study is being conducted by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging and Northwestern University, in partnership with ASHA, LeadingAge, Ziegler, Novare, Life Care Services, and National Investment Center.
