To support our members in developing leaders who will help take their organizations into the future, LeadingAge Maryland is pleased to offer a newly redesigned Emerging Leaders Program.

Helping high potential employees and new managers gain the knowledge and skills to contribute as effective leaders is a key initiative for any successful organization. As the healthcare environment changes and organizations are asked to do more with less, it will be more important than ever for not-for-profit aging services organizations to have effective leaders across all departments and levels. This program was developed based on feedback from LeadingAge Maryland members, past program participants, and input from subject matter experts in the fields of leadership and organizational development.


Emerging Leaders is a selective, four-month long growth and development experience for individuals at any level of an organization who are passionate about the field of aging services, and who are seeking to transform themselves, their relationships, and their organizations.



 To prepare a generation of engaged, whole, and effective leaders to serve the field of aging services.


About the program

Fellows will engage in small group, customized learning experiences over the course of four months. This is a highly interactive program that will prompt and facilitate self-exploration, discovery of strengths and areas of opportunity, and development of a plan for continued personal growth and development. Upon successful completion of the program, Fellow’s will receive an official certificate of completion, along with recognition on the LeadingAge Maryland website, future Emerging Leader’s materials, and at the following year’s Annual Conference.
