Managing partner Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum recently attended the annual Maryland Association of Community Services (MACS) CEO & Leadership Conference on May 2nd and 3rd. After two years away due to the pandemic, participants were delighted to once again be together to learn from each other, celebrate major wins, and focus on their shared mission of advocating for Marylanders with disabilities.
In addition to attending the conference, Sharon sponsored and hosted a Happy Hour. Guests were able to further reconnect with like-minded colleagues and individuals working to strengthen the capacity of agencies across Maryland to support people with developmental disabilities and their families in a fun, relaxed setting.
The 2022 conference centered on the theme, “The Path Forward,” and featured speeches from Mary Sowers, National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services CEO, and Dr. Monica McCall, Creative Services CEO. MACS also offered breakout sessions on various topics including moving forward post-pandemic with technology and remote supports; leadership when the tank is empty; NADSP – tools to build a strong workforce and support staff retention; housing resources and best practices; and more.
MACS is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening agencies to better support people with developmental disabilities and their families in their own communities. This is accomplished through advocacy that promotes the highest standards of program excellence; fosters a climate that develops and nurtures a quality workforce; and results in an increased capacity within Maryland communities to support people in inclusive settings.
Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum takes great pride in her role as Managing Partner of Brown, Goldstein & Levy while continuing her active practice on behalf of a varied client base. She remains a passionate and forceful advocate for individuals with disabilities and their families who confront barriers in education, high-stakes testing, employment, housing, and accessing state and federal services and supports. Sharon is equally passionate and forceful in her representation of nonprofit and for-profit entities that provide support and services to individuals with disabilities, whether serving as a proactive general counsel or as an aggressive advocate for her corporate clients.
