This webinar discusses the results of a mini-poll about measuring the value of Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) services. The aforementioned poll investigated how AAAs measured the value of their services, and if their value proposition development has led to successful partnerships. The webinar will also describe how community-based organizations (CBOs) can use value measurement to position themselves to both expand current and add new partnerships. Finally, participants will learn how to identify methods and strategies for measuring the value of services.
