AAIC and Global Immersion Experience (Summer)

The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® (AAIC®) is the world’s largest and most influential international meeting dedicated to advancing dementia science. Leading researchers, clinicians, public health experts and others gather each July to share findings that hold promise to improve dementia risk reduction, diagnosis, disease monitoring, treatment, care and support.

The Global Immersion Experience (GIE) offers philanthropists exclusive access to AAIC. This one-of-a-kind, multiday event offers a variety of curated activities that provide an inside look at the most promising developments in dementia science. Browse our viewbook.

The next Global Immersion Experience will be held July 15-17, 2023, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Participation in the Global Immersion Experience is by invitation only. For more information, please contact Alicia Dorman at or 312.639.7320.


AIM Advocacy Forum and Leadership Experience (Spring)

The Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM) is a separately incorporated advocacy affiliate of the Alzheimer’s Association, and the AIM Advocacy Forum is the nation's premier Alzheimer's disease advocacy event. Each year, volunteers from across the United States come together to make the case to federal policymakers for Alzheimer's research, care and support services.

Members of the Alzheimer’s Association Zenith Society, Governing Board, AIM Board and AIM Leadership Society are invited to attend additional special programs through our AIM Advocacy Forum Leadership Experience. Philanthropic leaders hear from Association and AIM executives and deepen their knowledge about our legislative priorities ahead of Hill Day.

This year’s AIM Advocacy Forum will be held March 19-21, 2023.


Zenith Business Meeting (Summer)

Zenith Society members gather with Association leaders and each other to celebrate their collective impact over the past year and gain insider insights that may inform their future philanthropic investments. Typically hosted in conjunction with AAIC and the Global Immersion Experience, the Zenith Business Meeting includes an exclusive update on the latest in dementia research from Alzheimer’s Association Chief Science Officer Maria C. Carrillo, Ph.D.

This year’s Zenith Business Meeting will be held July 15, 2023, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
