The Baltimore County Provider Council is a membership organization that is committed to building a professional community that improves the lives of older adults. Our membership is composed of individuals representing for-profit and not-for-profit businesses and government agencies that serve older adults in and around Baltimore County. We strive to provide opportunities for education, networking, leadership development, partnership building and philanthropy.
Educational events are held the 4th Tuesday of the month beginning at 8:45 am from October through April (except for December) in the Maryland Masonic Home, 300 International Circle, Cockeysville, MD 21030. These seminars provide information on current topics relevant to the needs of older adults. Continental breakfast and open networking time is available before each educational session. Membership or a $10 fee per event is required to attend beginning January 1, 2019. Social Work CEU's and Certificates of Attendance are available for dues paying members.
Members Only Luncheons are held in the Fall and Spring and feature outstanding speakers on personal and professional development topics.
Networking Happy Hours are held in the Summer and during the Winter Holiday season to have a relaxed atmosphere to meet others and build your referral network. The Winter Happy Hour also serves as one of our opportunities to support the Philanthropy Committee to donate to those in need.
Consider Volunteering - The strength of our organization is directly related to the volunteerism of the board and the members. Consider being where the action is and having a hand in shaping the Provider Council by joining one of the following committees: Program Planning, Membership, Philanthropy, Special Events, Marketing/Communications and Technology. Serving on a committee is a great way to hone your leadership skills, meet others working in the field and learn from colleagues.
Board Involvement - Individuals who have completed one year of membership are also eligible to apply for a position on our Board. Elections for Board vacancies are held each year. For more information, see our By-laws.

January Presentation: Life is Work of Art 01/26/21 Patty Haw
Lucy Rose Fischer, PhD
How can we live creatively—so that we make the most of our years? There is a “use it or lose it” principle for cognitive ability—if we stimulate our brains, we continue to grow dendrites, even in old age. Using a combination of research, personal stories, and vivid illustrations, Fischer shows how we can create our lives as a work of art. She shares her own experience of launching her art career around age 60 when she asked herself—“How old do I have to be to follow my dream?”
