GROWS provides a platform for networking, education, advocacy, and public awareness for senior service professionals in Montgomery County.


Joining GROWS was one of the smartest things I did as a Marketing Director. The relationships I’ve built have directly affected my bottom line. The more I get to know GROWS members, the more qualified referrals come my way -- and the more I can send to my colleagues as well."

One of the best ways to increase your networking capacity is to join a GROWS committee. Volunteers are the heart of GROWS and the following committees do the work of keeping GROWS a vital and active organization. There are five committees to choose from, and each meet for one meeting a month.
