    I am confused by your coverage of the @012 Conference. The list of Actions is from May 2012, however the photos are from 2011 event.
    The report appears to be a mixture of events.
    Could you pleae clarify and let me know when photos from May 2012 available.
    Thank you

    Hi Monica
    We are currently developing a separate page for the 2012 Seniors Conference is underway – we will post photos from the conference on that page.
    The main page on the Conference gives an update on the 2012 Seniors Conference, and also provides a link to the 2011 Seniors Conference page, where photos and details of that conference are posted.
    Sorry for any confusion.
    Debra Parnell
