Elder Concert Boca Raton

Attend Elder Concert at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton

Welcome to the AFELA Elder Concert

The 17th 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.

“As a caregiver of 8 years - mom had Alzheimer's, and as a social worker having attended many other conferences and workshops, I thought I knew it all. I was wrong. I learned so much at the Elder Concert. The presentations held my interest, were informative and professional. Each presenter was approachable and available for questions. Attending the Elder Conference was an invaluable experience.” Lois DeNigris
“We enjoy coming to the Elder Concert because it gives us the opportunity to connect with attorneys we may not know, or with attorneys whom we don’t get to see regularly. It is a wonderful forum to learn about the challenges facing the industry, and what our colleagues are doing to overcome obstacles.” Nick Barton, Executive Director, AGED, Inc.
Attended for 5 years, from 2012-2016, and will attend the 2017 Elder Concert
