AARP CEO named to The NonProfit Times 'Power & Influence Top 50' List

For the fifth consecutive year, The NonProfit Times (NPT) is honoring CEO Jo Ann Jenkins as one of their “Power & Influence Top 50.”

The annual list honors non-profit executives and strategists who have distinguished themselves as “initiators of concepts that will have legs and are already having impact.”

According to NPT, "the 2017 honorees were selected from a group of about 300 top executives. A committee of NPT staff, contributors and a few executives plugged in to executive movement were involved in the selection process."

In addition, Jenkins has been added to the NPT's Power & Influence Hall of Fame. She, along with the other 49 honorees, will be honored at the gala's 20th Anniversary Gala next month at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
