Welcome to Encore Network, a coalition of leaders who champion the civic, social, and economic contributions of people 50+ by creating community, stimulating learning, and inspiring action to transform the encore stage of life.

We greet 2021 with hope and optimism. In the coming year, the world will need the encore movement and Encore Network more than ever. Communities will need older people to volunteer their talents. Every generation will enjoy renewed opportunities to be with each other and strengthen our social fabric. A recovering economy will need the talents of experienced adults.  Encore Network’s plans for the coming year include:

  • Monthly webinars addressing timely and relevant topics to help you succeed.
  • Coffee chats – informal opportunities to connect with other leaders and share ideas.
  • Affinity groups, connections forged to explore and go deeper on issues.
  • Exploration of joint projects and collaborations to leverage our strengths.

In 2021 we will celebrate our 10th anniversary. Over the last decade Encore Network has created community, stimulated learning, and inspired action to transform the encore stage of life. As longtime member Bevan Rogel says:

“Encore Network has connected me to amazing individuals and organizations that are advancing the encore stage of life, along with providing relevant programs and resources that help me with my local work.” 

If you have been with us throughout our journey…thank you for your participation.  If you are new to the encore movement, and/or, Encore Network…welcome! Please check us out and consider joining one of our upcoming events. Please let me know if I can be of help in any way. I am rather a rookie myself, starting as Executive Director in November 2020, but am delighted to be in this role and am committed to being a resource for you.

Paula Hart
Executive Director
