Katie Smith Sloan has advocated on behalf of older adults for more than 30 years. Sloan is the President and CEO of LeadingAge, a national organization representing more than 5,000 organizations in aging services. She is also the Executive Director of The Global Ageing Network, an international network of leaders in aging services dedicated to enhancing the quality of care for the aging population. Sloan serves on the boards of numerous organizations in the field of aging. Her leadership—especially during the COVID-19 pandemic—gives voice to the economic, social, and racial inequities that are too frequently experienced by older adults across the country and right here in our region.

Practicing in a broad range of areas, Potomac Law helped Seabury increase the accessibility of our Congregational Resources curriculum, The Path Ahead: Spirituality & Purpose in Later Life℠, by helping to navigate the trademark and copyright clearance process.
