Mitzi was honored when the 1st nationwide collaboration between the American Institute of Architects [ AIA ], the American Society of Interior Designers [ ASID ], the National Kitchen and Bath Association [ NKBA ] , the International Interior Design Association [ IIDA ] and the Home Builders Association [ HBA ] invited her to be their keynote CEU presenter in November of 2013 so all in attendance could learn about the challenges and opportunities inherent in providing for the health, safety and welfare for America’s growing baby boomer population, projected to be at 80 million people by 2030.

Read what Colorado interior designer, owner of Home On The Range,  Lynn Bier, had to say after attending Mitzi’s CEU presentation:

I have watched in amazement as Mitzi Beach has taken a positive and dynamic approach to creating awareness of the impacts of the aging of the Boomer population through her “Boomer Smarts”. Due to the significant and ever growing numbers of Baby Boomers who are living longer, and will be in need of more care than we can currently provide, this is a subject that is of vital interest and concern to the building and interior design field. Mitzi has developed a synergistic approach to the aging process by teaching us how to age with health, humor and grace and by creating an awareness of the need for housing that is geared to allowing the Baby Boomers to stay in their homes longer!

Mitzi’s presentation is a wakeup call to all of us in the fields of architecture, interior design and
construction. The wave is cresting and we are not prepared. I highly recommend Mitzi’s CEU presentation. It was filled with humor and facts. It made us laugh, it gave as dose of reality and it also gave us great tools with which to approach the Boomer crises. “Boomer Smarts” is a very appropriate title for Mitzi’s presentation and I came away feeling as if I were a smarter “Boomer” for having attended it.
