David Golaner Appointed Executive Director of Myerberg Center
David Golaner has been named the new Executive Director of the Edward A. Myerberg Center, announced the Center’s Board President Carol Sandler.
Mr. Golaner was most recently Managing Funeral Director of Sol Levinson & Bros., a funeral home in Baltimore. Prior to that position, he held a number of positions over nine years at The Park School of Baltimore, including Director of Auxiliary Programs and Director of Alumni Relations. Mr. Golaner has held volunteer positions with numerous committees at Beth El Congregation, The Park School of Baltimore, and Franklin & Marshall College. He is a graduate of Franklin & Marshall College and received a Graduate Certificate in Arts/Non-Profit Management from American University.
Located in northwest Baltimore, the Edward A. Myerberg Center provides over 125 programs for 1,000 members ages 55 and over, including classes in painting, sculpture, bridge, current events, computers, and fitness. The Center’s Eating Together program serves 12,000 meals a year to seniors. The Center began operating in 1976 and moved to its permanent facility on Fallstaff Road in Baltimore City in 1989.
“David has already brought energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to the Center,” said Carol Sandler. “While it was a daring choice to bring a 33-year-old on as the director of an organization serving older adults, David immediately established processes and introduced programs that have already proven to be successful.”
Said David Golaner, “I am excited by the engagement of the Myerberg Center’s members. I look forward to both the rewards and challenges as we create new programs and expand existing opportunities for older adults in our community.”
