Dan Heim to Retire
After more than 30 years with the association, LeadingAge NY Executive VP Dan Heim is retiring at the end of January. While we wish him the best on a well-deserved rest, we know that his expertise, wisdom, and humor will be greatly missed by both members and colleagues. Always quick with a pun and modest about his achievements (which include numerous marathons), Dan set the standard of excellence for the association for many years.
Dan joined LeadingAge NY (at the time NYAHSA) in 1989 after a stint at the Department of Health as a fiscal analyst. As the head of the association’s Policy department and one of the leading voices on long term care in New York State, Dan leaves a lasting, positive impact on the state’s long term care system. As Executive VP, he has been a key leader in all aspects of the organization, has spearheaded many key initiatives, and stepped up as interim CEO during a critical time. Throughout his career, he served on numerous boards and state and national advisory groups, spoke at countless conferences and policy forums, and helped guide member organizations through some of their toughest challenges.
Although the current conditions do not allow it, we hope to celebrate Dan’s retirement in a more traditional way in the fall and will let members and friends know once that is scheduled.
