Ken Gordon Named to AARP Vermont Executive Council

Ken Gordon of St Johnsbury has been appointed to the AARP Vermont Executive Council. He will work closely with the council, staff and volunteers throughout the state to help AARP achieve its mission in Vermont. He will contribute to advancing the current AARP Vermont agenda including health care reform, energy affordability, livable communities and transportation issues among others.

Gordon has served as the Executive Director of the Area Agency on Aging for Northeastern Vermont for the past eight years. He holds a Bachelors of Science degree from Lyndon State College (1984), and a Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Vermont (1996). His prior work history includes five years of leading the medical social work department of Caledonia Home Health and Hospice of St. Johnsbury, Vermont, and thirteen years of work with the Vermont Department of Children and Families.

Gordon serves on the board of several local organizations, including the Community of Vermont Elders and Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital. Additionally, he has been elected by his peers to serve as President of the Vermont Association of Area Agencies on Aging and as one of two delegates representing the New England states on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging.

Ken brings a wealth of experience, commitment and compassion to this role and we are pleased to have him join the team,” said Jim Leddy, AARP Vermont state president and chair of the Executive Council. “Ken is a respected and effective advocate and community resource in the Northeast Kingdom area and has really made a difference for the older residents of that region. We are fortunate to have him with us.”
