The 2016 AROHE (Association of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education) conference, “Transforming Retirement: Re-Writing Life’s Next Chapter,” was held in Seattle, Washington, Sunday August 14 through Tuesday, August 16.
At this conference, participants strategized with peers about changing the role of later life to one that fulfills retirees, enhances universities and makes a difference on and beyond the campus. They left inspired by institutions and visionaries who outline a new way. Who better to lead the charge to change institutional and cultural attitudes than our own staff and faculty retirees?Participants

Exciting Travel Options
AROHE and the UWRA encouraged participants to combine this conference with the chance to explore the region.
Seattle’s local wonders, mountain and water views will lead you to Mount Rainier, ferries across Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula beyond. Venture north (maybe by float plane!) to the San Juan Islands. Vancouver, British Columbia is less than a three-hour drive away; so is Portland, Oregon. Wine country in eastern Washington and the Pacific coast in Oregon may be beckoning, as well.
