Eastern Area Agency on Aging (EAAA) in Bangor, Maine seeks an experienced Executive Director to lead the organization. Since 1973, Eastern Area Agency on Aging has been providing seniors, adults with disabilities and caregivers with a variety of options, opportunities, resources and referrals throughout Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, and Washington counties.
The Executive Director is responsible for planning, organizing, directing and coordinating all programs, operations and activities of the Agency, working with the Board of Directors to formulate a vision and long term strategic plan, and assuming overall leadership and administration of the Agency and its programs.
This is an exciting time to take EAAA’s helm, with the pending opening this fall of a new center in Brewer for seniors, the Durgin Center, named after a former EAAA Board President, well-known Bangor City Council Chair, and lifelong advocate for seniors, Major General Nelson Durgin. The Durgin Center will have accessible space for 400+ seniors to attend classes, stay socially connected, and receive meals, and it will go a long way to help seniors recover from the increasing challenges of isolation, loneliness, and food insecurity faced during the pandemic.
