Elder Concert Boca Raton

Attend Elder Concert at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton

Welcome to the AFELA Elder Concert

The 16th Annual Elder Concert is a one-day statewide gathering of the growing network of elder care professionals in Florida. Who Attends Elder Concert? accountants, facility administrators, attorneys, government agencies, financial planners, geriatric care managers, professional guardians, judges, social workers, and other elder care professionals and organizations.

In 1998, still early in the field of Elder Law, the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys recognized that its members could not do their job without working with other elder care disciplines. The next year, a meeting was held in Boca Raton with leaders of statewide elder care organizations. All were in agreement – Florida’s elderly have diverse but interrelated needs and each organization has its own instruments but none could play in isolation. A statewide gathering was therefore needed and Elder Concert began. Elder Concert is the program that brings elder care players together. Rather than lectures, the program is designed in small group discussions, each room holding a different topic. Facilitators are subject matter experts and are provided training to create an interactive room where all attendees participate. Registrants do not need to prepare ahead of time but should be prepared to ask questions, lend an opinion and share their own experiences and knowledge. It is these interactions which create exciting and true multidisciplinary learning.

The Elder Concert is managed by its founder, Scott Solkoff, and his firm, Solkoff Legal, P.A. All profits from Elder Concert go to the Public Policy Task Force advocacy fund established by AFELA and The Florida Bar’s Elder Law Section.


The Elder Concert program begins promptly at 8:00 am and presents you with workshop sessions and one plenary luncheon presentation at 11:45 am. At each session, you choose one topic of interest then move from session to session as you meet new people, solidify old relationships and make your own contribution to each topic. Elder Concert is purposely structured for interaction and intensive learning. The last session ends at approximately 4:30 pm. 100% of profits are donated to the public policy work of AFELA and The Florida Bar's Elder Law Section.
