Conference Planning Committee

Brainstorming Session

Join the MGA Conference Committee

The Maryland Gerontological Association has a 36-year history of innovative Annual Conferences that give our members the opportunity to learn, share ideas, network and engage with vendors. The Conference Planning Committee is responsible for producing the annual conference and volunteers are expected to lead the execution, planning, and implementation of the annual, 1-day conference. The conference is held in the spring of each year between May-June and typically attracts over 200 aging professionals.


Expectations of the Annual Conference Committee

  • Identify a big-draw keynote speaker

  • Identify a theme or sessions which are relevant, innovative and well-researched (documented in professional/academic journals)

  • Identify speakers who are competent in subject matter and able to transmit the educational content in an engaging and captivating manner
