LeadingAge Florida, the state’s only association that serves the entire continuum of care for seniors, elected Joel Anderson as its new Board Chair during the association’s recent convention in Orlando.
Mr. Anderson is the CEO of Village On The Isle in Venice. He is also the past chair of LeadingAge Florida’s continuing care public policy committee, and past chair of the Governor’s Continuing Care Advisory Council.

In addition to Anderson’s election, senior living leaders from Central and South Florida were also elected to the LeadingAge Florida Board of Trustees at its convention. The board is responsible for LeadingAge Florida’s mission, goals, resources and objectives, and comprises leaders from the state’s premier elder care organizations that serve more than 80,000 of Florida’s older adults. Newly elected board members include:
- Scott Cairns, Executive Director of Indian River Estates in Vero Beach
- Aimee Hilton, Administrator of St. Andrews Estates in Boca Raton
- Chris Newport, Executive Director of Sinai Residences of Boca Raton

“LeadingAge Florida’s position as a highly respected and effective association is in excellent hands due to the hard work and dedication of our board members,” Bahmer said. “Our new trustees bring with them years of knowledge, experience and dedication that will prove invaluable as we work to expand the high-quality senior living options in Florida. I also want to thank our outgoing board members for their leadership and commitment to our association.”
