On Tuesday our Senior Market Group (SMG) annual breakfast at The Bethesdan Hotel. Our special guest speaker, Bradley Schurman, author of “The Super Age”, offered fabulous insights on how the new normal impacts aging.

GBCC members and guests enjoyed networking and leaning more about our event sponsors through their festive table decorations.

Later that day, we held our first Off The Clock happy hour for 2023 hosted by Rehab 2 Perform. Dr. Josh Funk and his team showcased their fitness facility and shared helpful tips on maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.

GBCC members and guests enjoyed drinks and small bites courtesy of Wine Key Experience while networking and enjoying a post-holiday catch up.

On Wednesday our Executive Committee held their informal swear in ceremony in the GBCC Boardroom including incoming Chair, Andy Fraser, of Sandglass Systems. We are excited to begin working on our 2023 goals with our new and returning committee members.

The negative impacts of ageism are vast and well documented,” says the FrameWorks Institute and AARP. “…Companies that use ageist advertising and marketing are at risk of alienating older consumers, who spend 56 cents of every dollar in the United States. And older people are projected to outnumber children by the year 2034.”

Reframing Aging Through Images: Recommendations from Research provides six detailed recommendations on what to do, what to avoid, and why when it comes to communicating about older adults in the workplace and in other settings. It is available for free download from AARP at https://www.aarp.org/content/dam/aarp/research/surveys_statistics/life-leisure/2022/aging-media-representation-recommendations-report.doi.10.26419-2Fres.00546.001.pdf.
