The Board of Trustees and Board of Advisors enable the mission of A.G. Rhodes.

The Board of Trustees is comprised of business and thought leaders in our community. Many members of this board are the second generation of their family to serve. The primary purpose of this organization is to promote, support and further the charitable mission of A.G. Rhodes.

Trustees manage the affairs of the corporation by overseeing business and operating plans, budgets and capital expenditures. They support the corporation both financially and with their time. In addition, this board oversees the management company and the Board of Advisors.

The Board of Advisors serves as an advisory board to the Board of Trustees and makes recommendations on capital projects, community outreach and other activities that implement and enhance the charitable purposes of A.G. Rhodes.

Members of the Board of Advisors are advocates for our organization and the issue of aging. They serve as ambassadors for our homes–supporting the organization with their time and financial contributions. They provide valuable insight to the Board of Trustees and maintain a strong presence in each of our homes.
