Andre’ Nabors, Chair

The American Association of Retirement Communities Board Announces location for November 9 – 11, 2016 Conference – Asheville, North Carolina.

With a slogan of “retire like a Vanderbilt”, the city of Asheville, North Carolina has the right perspective on Asheville
delivering a high level of amenities and services for today’s retiree.  What better place for the American Association of Retirement Communities’ 2016 Annual Conference?While Baby Boomers seeking retirement destinations are generally not seeking to build a Biltmore (once the largest private residence in the country – and a venue for one of the AARC conference’s evening functions), the seminars and symposia at the 2016 Conference – to be held November 9th-11th – can help marketers, planners, economic development leaders and others to attract those discerning buyers.  Networking opportunities and the sharing of best practices – long a staple of AARC conferences – are an additional benefit to attendees.And why not hear learn more about those “best practices” in a “best place” – Asheville’s recent accolades include US News and World Reports “10 Best Places to Retire”,  TRAVEL + LEISURE #10 on its’ “World’s Best Cities” list and Frommer’s “One of the must see destinations in the World.”  Don’t miss your opportunity to see what this community has to offer, while learning what you can do for yours!
