What is CA2030?

A future-ready California Aging Network will need to proactively prepare to serve a larger, older, and more diverse population of older Californians. To prepare, CDA launched CA2030 and is convening leaders in aging to identify opportunities for Area Agency on Aging (AAA) network-wide advancement and enhancement.

CA2030’s six areas of focus:

  • Funding sources and capacities
  • Geography and demographics
  • Governance
  • Branding and communications
  • Programs and services
  • Performance measures

CA2030’s steering committee convenes monthly meetings and is in the process of developing a future-oriented framework with recommendations for both CDA and the California Aging Network.

How to get involved:

CDA in partnership with Collaborative Consulting is hosting a three-part webinar series sharing research insights and perspectives, as well as best practices that will inform CA2030 Steering Committee recommendations. Learn more and register for each webinar below.
