Rosemary Nixon and her talented Palm Beach county leadership team have embraced the idea of connecting experienced adults with social impact work, launching their program in 2015. The Delray News recently profiled Rosemary’s vision and Encore Palm Beach County‘s 2018 plans.

A former nonprofit executive and retirement coach, Rosemary launched the program as part of her own encore. She noted that “this is an untapped generation…who are used to making a difference. All of these people are retiring and what are they going to do? How can we tap into these people as volunteers for our community? Palm Beach County is ground zero for this.”

Encore Palm Beach County has presented well-attended events featuring national leader Chris Farrell (author of Unretirement), and workshops: “Never Stop Growing” and “What’s Next for You?” 2018 plans include a speaker series, webinars and a job fair in partnership with higher education institutions, social service organizations and employers.

Snowbirds, you’re always welcome to attend and send your friends who winter in Florida.
