Upcoming Events

17th Annual Winter Conference

PAELA’s 2025 annual winter conference is scheduled for February 20 – 22, 2025 at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort & Spa in Bedford, PA.

The Programming Committee will begin planning for this conference this May by identifying high-level elder law topics and speakers. As additional information is available for PAELA members, updates will be provided on this site as well as PAELA’s ListServ.

PAELA looks forward to reaching out to many loyal companies that have sponsored past events providing an opportunity to promote their products and services to the elder law attorneys.

In the meantime, PAELA members may review past winter conferences including handouts provided to all attendees by logging in through the member portal.

Join us if you are interested in joining PAELA to be able to take advantage of CLE topics.
