Personal Thoughts from the Chairperson, AAA 1-B Board of Directors

Our Agency is special and deserves a special leader.  This Agency has been led by only two individuals over its 40-year history.   Times of fundamental change, both because of this leadership change, but also because of the ever-present changes within national health policy, can be uncomfortable.  They also offer an exciting opportunity to take stock of our accomplishments and open ourselves to the next phase of development.  We seek an individual to lead us through that process and help us create an even better future.

We need a CEO who can assess the organization quickly, integrate the current talent into a strong leadership team, deliver on strategic objectives, and incorporate meaningful performance-based incentives. We are looking for an individual with strong non-profit experience in a field related to service to Older Adults.  A successful candidate needs to have led a complex organization in a highly regulated environment and understand the convergence of health services and home and community-based services for older adults.  The individual must have the competencies and leadership characteristics that would best position our organization for growth and continued programmatic success.  The Agency has a history of leadership and innovation, and needs a CEO who is experienced working on the leading edge of innovation.

INTERESTED?  Send cover letter/resume in one document to Lisa Dailey, HR Manager at  Put CEO CANDIDATE – YOUR NAME as the subject. Phone: 248.262.9218.  Complete CEO Job Description is on our website at:
