WASHINGTON, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AAHSA President & CEO Larry Minnix, president and CEO of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) joined AAHSA board members Jill Schumann, CEO of Lutheran Services in America (LSA) and Chuck Gould, CEO of Volunteers of America (VOA) on the NonProfit Times' "Power and Influence Top 50" list.
The list, published annually, features executives and thought leaders who are selected for "the impact they have now and for the innovative plans they are putting into place to evolve the charitable sector."
Minnix made the list for the first time because the publication's editors believe he is "always seeking the big idea," and works to "make sure the 'silent generation,' the growing population in long-term care, has a voice in policy-making." The publication also praised Gould for his collaborative work in hurricane recovery efforts and Schumann's emphasis on accountability and transparency among the 280 health and human service groups she leads.
These individuals will be honored at The NPT Power & Influence Top 50 Gala at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. this week.
"AAHSA's members like VOA and LSA have a long history of fulfilling our mission as not-for-profits: to change lives," Minnix said. "It is an honor to join them on this list as we work together to fulfill our mission to create the future of aging services."
