Dear LeadingAge Massachusetts Member:

The LeadingAge Massachusetts Committee on Trustees is responsible for presenting a slate of nominees to the Board, to be elected by the membership at our 70th Annual Meeting, which will be held on October 9, 2024. We invite all members to consider submitting names of qualified individuals (including their own) to be considered by the committee to fill open seats on the Board.

The Committee on Trustees is looking to identify members who bring diverse ideas and backgrounds to complement the skills and knowledge of our existing Board. We need energetic people with vision and a commitment to not-for-profit aging services. Potential candidates should demonstrate leadership ability and a commitment to furthering the mission of the Association.

Employees and members of the governing board of a LeadingAge Massachusetts provider member organization are eligible to be elected to the Board of Trustees. The Committee will also consider a candidate’s involvement with the Association and/or level of engagement in the aging services field at large. In addition, LeadingAge Massachusetts’ bylaws allow for the election of up to three Strategic Trustees who are “individuals nominated by the Committee on Trustees who would not otherwise be eligible to serve on the Board, but who, in the judgment of the Committee on Trustees, bring diverse ideas and perspectives not otherwise available to the Board of Trustees.” Examples of Strategic Trustees might include someone with legislative or regulatory experience, a background in media, a resident, geriatrician, researcher/educator, etc. Such Strategic Trustees are not eligible to serve as officers of the Association, but are otherwise considered full Board members with voting rights.
