Smart money management, talented people, and efficient processes make your association go ’round. You’ll get the latest know-how on all three from experts and colleagues at the 2014 Finance, HR & Business Operations Conference.

In her opening general session, AARP COO Jo Ann Jenkins will discuss how employers can effectively manage workforces made up of members of multiple generations.

Additionally, AARP research has found that more and more people want or need to keep working past traditional retirement age. These trends are disrupting the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, as employers seek ways to get the most out of an aging and increasingly diverse workforce.
