USAging Aging Innovations & Achievement Awards

Cumulus Cares

Cumulus is thrilled to be a sponsor of the USAging Aging Innovations & Achievement (AIA) Awards program. This prestigious award is a flagship program for USAging.

Cumulus is excited to help USAging showcase the initiatives of Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) and Title VI Native American Aging Programs across the country. We join USAging in saluting all those who offered their initiatives for consideration.

Aging Innovations Awards recognize the most innovative programs among all nominations received and Aging Achievement Awards recognize the most contemporary, effective and replicable programs.

Annually, the awards are presented during the USAging Conference and Trade show. During the upcoming 48th Annual 2023 Conference and Trade show, in Salt Lake City, UT, programs will be honored with 16 engraved Aging Innovations Awards and 34 Aging Achievement Awards. In addition, Cumulus’ sponsorship helps enable the top-ranking programs to receive monetary awards. The Cumulus team looks forward to presenting checks to the top winners on stage during the conference General Session on Monday July 17.

Cumulus team members have been avid supporters of AAAs and Title VI Native American Aging Programs for more than 20 years,” said Cumulus CEO John Byer. “Being a sponsor of the AIA program is one way we can help promote the success of the best HCBS providers anywhere – USAging members.”

“We’ve worked with AAAs and Title VI programs in more than 30 states over the years. For us, being a sponsor of the AIA program is about honoring the hard work and cutting-edge innovations the network exemplifies each day.”

-Tom Laba, Cumulus President

To qualify for an award, programs must have been in operation between one and five years, receive minimal assistance from outside experts and demonstrate effective approaches in either offering new services or improving existing services. Awards criteria include demonstration of measurable results, such as cost savings, improved client service and enhanced staff productivity. The AIA Awards are open to USAging AAA and Title VI members only.

Highlights of all past Aging Innovations Award recipients are available in the USAging-members-only AIA clearinghouse.
