Booming national and world economy -- several anti-aging gatherings -- good time for the long-delayed CR X?CR X Booming Economy anti-aging conferences new CR Society Members
Posted 03 March 2018 - 11:07 AM
The last few meetings of the CR Society had wonderful speakers, but disappointingly few CR Society members attending.We should remember, that the US -- and world's -- economy were crawling at a snail's pace at that time; there was high unemployment -- and many of the unemployed had given up looking for work.
As pointed out to me by Brian Delaney, most CR Society members are very far from being wealthy. It was a bad time to present CR IX.
Times have changed; we're living in a booming US -- and world -- economy. Rising wages, the lowest unemployment in many years,lower taxes, new highs in the stock market.
And there are several societies presenting material on aging -- and anti-aging (including "Rescue Elders" in Florida, among others).
IMO, this is a GOOD time for the resurgence of CR Society meetings. I think it's a good time for David and Robert to consider planning a CR X. I volunteer to help.

This would be a good group with which to partner -- and it's in the Summer, so most academics (like I) would have no problem attending:
American Aging Association
47th Annual Meeting
held in conjunction with the
2018 Nathan Shock Centers Summit
to Delay Aging
June 27 -July 1, 2018

if we don’t get at least 4 rsvps within a week, may need to make other plans though anybody is free to organize of course. Thanks for your initiative advocating/organizing, it has been a while since the group has gotten together....
