The aging services industry needs good leaders in order to keep pace with America’s shifting demographics. ASA’s key goal is to support and enhance the knowledge and skills of people who work to improve the quality of life of older adults and their families, and we fulfill this goal by developing and mentoring members’ leadership skills and growth. Our fast-track Leadership Academy supports those already in a rewarding career, but who are seeking leadership positions. And the two-decades old New Ventures in Leadership program supports leaders of color. The leadership landing page is an especially useful resource that gives information about those dynamic programs, while featuring stories and webinar content on careers in aging, re-careering in other directions, mentoring and its many benefits, staff development, and more.

By Ty Johnson

Wednesday’s General Session, titled “Ending Senior Poverty: Why We Can’t Wait,” included both a pointed call to action from ASA Chair Bob Blancato and a major announcement from Public Policy Chair Bill Benson, but AARP Foundation President Lisa Marsh Ryerson was the one who got everyone out of their seats.

She told a spellbound crowd exactly why #WeCantWait, and the Twitter storm that followed led at least one editor in Lower Manhattan to contact ASA to find out what all the fuss was about.

Planners: Here's the Secret to Finding and Supporting Allies for Livable Communities

posted 03.05.2018

By Erin McAuliff

As planners and livable community advocates, we can always use help drumming up support for an important project or messaging proposed policies. While we know that engaging allies to assist can go a long way towards advancing these goals, more often than not we struggle to find these allusive supporters so ready to get involved and make a difference.
