SAN MATEO, CA - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) will host the largest gatherings of seniors in the Bay Area on Thursday, November 10, 2011, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the South San Francisco Conference Center.


Speier founded the Seniors OnThe Move 24 years ago to give seniors a venue to connect with their peers, hear from inspiring speakers and learn about efforts in Sacramento and Washington that are impacting their lives.


This year’s theme is “Staying Connected.” Speier stated, “Technology has made communication faster, but to many seniors, gizmos such as smart phones, iPods and social media can be intimidating,” Speier stated. “The conference speakers will provide tips on how to better maneuver this new landscape and stay connected with family and friends.”

This year’s speakers include Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown and U.S. Health and Human Services Regional Director Herb Schultz. For the second year, the conference will have a farmers market giving away fresh local produce to conference attendees.
