ASA Names New Board Chair-Elect
posted 02.09.2016

ASA is proud to announce that Karyne Jones, president and CEO of the National Caucus and Center on Black Aging, Inc. (NCBA), and NCBA Housing Management and Development Corporation, will serve as Chair-elect of ASA’s Board of Directors.

Jones has served on the ASA Board since 2011, including serving on the Finance Committee since 2011. “With her leadership skills, her knowledge of ASA’s financial position over time, and her stature in the field of aging services and diversity, the Nominating Task Force believes Karyne is well-suited to assume the Chair-elect role,” said ASA Board Chair Lynn Friss Feinberg. 

Before becoming NCBA’s CEO, Jones was executive director of Federal Relations with SBC Telecommunications (now ATT) in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, she was legislative aide to Congressman Andrew Young, eventually becoming his public affairs officer and White House liaison.

Jones, a San Antonio native, then returned to Texas, where she served for eight years in the Texas Legislature representing District 120 in San Antonio. She has a master’s degree from Northern Illinois University in Public Affairs, and a second master’s in Public Administration from Harvard University.

In addition, ASA is pleased to announce that the Board has also approved additional two-year terms for current Board members Brian Duke and William Benson.
