She or he will initially develop deep knowledge of the field, core programs, operations, fundraising strategy and strategic goals to help lead the organization to this next phase in its development.

About the Position:

    AGE of Central Texas seeks an Executive Director who has strong business acumen, is highly skilled at building trusting working relationships, is a fearless fundraiser, values-driven, and thrives at being in the public eye as the face of the organization.

    Ideally, the new Executive Director would understand the local aging service delivery system and key players. The Executive Director must value the organization’s role in the continuum of services, and have an understanding of and passion for the organization’s mission. The new Executive Director should possess a keen ability to identify and act on opportunities and have an exceptionally strong track-record in fundraising. The new Executive Director must have the skillset and passion to successfully steer a relatively large organization toward its identified strategic direction and further the financial standing and revenue model for the organization.

About the Organization:
The AGE of Central Texas is a medium-sized, highly-regarded, growing non-profit organization in the Central Texas region. AGE of Central Texas envisions a world where aging is a shared journey of strength and compassion. AGE tackles the challenges of aging with expert solutions—we are dedicated to older adults and their caregivers. AGE’s interrelated programs focus on serving older adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and providing support, education, and resources to caregivers.

AGE has a clear vision for where it’s headed, with a strong portfolio of programming. We operate 2 licensed medical model adult day health centers, one in Austin and one in Round Rock. We have a health equipment lending program loaning durable medical equipment to anyone with a need. Our Caregiver U brings evidenced-based training to caregivers in a four-county area through a train-the-trainer model with over 30 collaborative partners. Memory Connections supports people early in the diagnosis of memory loss. The AGE Computer Lab’s dedicated volunteers provide peer-based computer training to older adults. The Caregiver Resource Center coordinates workshops and seminars for the community and provides information and resources to help caregivers no matter where they are on the journey of aging. The AGE Building is a multi-tenant nonprofit center providing fellow nonprofits a place to be in order to put more into their services.

AGE of Central Texas is now at a new phase in its growth and development. Continuing the expansion and delivery of existing programs and services, AGE seeks to grow our programs to meet the evolving needs of the increasing older adult population in Central Texas. This will include being open to the development of programming called for by the community itself. AGE of Central Texas has a strong and dedicated board of directors that is actively engaged in the governance of the organization and ensuring its financial viability.

The organization now seeks a leader who excels in moving a solid organization from stability to high performance through continuous quality improvement, strategic growth, internal leadership development and tightly aligned organizational processes and policies.

Our mission is to tackle the challenges of aging with expert solutions. We are dedicated to older adults and those who care for them. The vision of AGE is drawn from the words of our founders—We envision a world where aging is a shared journey of strength and compassion.
