LeadingAge Maryland 2019 Annual Conference- What if




The 2019 Call for Presentation Proposals has closed. All speakers have been notified. 

The theme for the 2019 annual conferences for both LeadingAge Maryland and LeadingAge national is “What If…”  


What if together we could help older adults and their families embrace hospice in a more timely way? What if we were to work with others across the region to make a difference for people who provide hands-on supports and care? What if we could help people have more options to age in place? What if we could incorporate technology in new ways? What if we were able to expand the availability of affordable housing? What if everyone practiced trauma-informed care? What if we were able to reduce ageism and better use the gifts and experience of older adults?


What if…? How would you frame your passion around that question? Are there ways we can work together in LeadingAge Maryland to bring your “what if” closer to reality? We’ll be focusing throughout 2019 on What If…?


We look forward to discovering the possibilities of What if with you April 16-17 at Turf Valley Resort, Ellicott City, MD.

Our annual conference is a great opportunity to take time out from the daily rush to focus on both the present and the future. Life on Purpose points to intentional priorities, strong values lived out daily, calculated risks, wise decisions, and new ways of thinking and being. We will gather to explore how individually and collectively we might each live life on purpose and extend the fruits of that to older adults in Maryland living their lives on purpose. 


2017 Annual Conference- Power of Purpose

The Business Member Galleria

The Power of Purpose, the 2017 LeadingAge Maryland Annual Conference was held April 24-25 at Turf Valley Resort. This was the 5th year of the conference and the biggest ever.  We had more attendees, more exhibitors and more sessions than ever before! 


LeadingAge Maryland embodies the collegial community of not-for-profits working together to make a difference for one another and for older adults in Maryland. Nowhere is this 

more apparent than at the conference when learning together, laughing together, collaborating, and sharing experiences and ex

pertise are the order of the day. Our members, both not-for-profits and business firms, have so much rich knowledge and perspectives to share.

A good time was had by all
