As Idaho attracts more retirees and seniors live longer, senior centers have the potential to play an increasingly-important role in communities across the state.  Let’s re-imagine our senior centers and create exciting community gathering places for all Idaho seniors.

What do you get when you combine the insightfulness of a seasoned consultant, the leadership skills of an executive director, the organizational skills of an association manager, the commitment of a Board of Director member, the confidence of a nationally recognized public speaker, and the savviness of a TV show host?  You get Pat Bohse. 

Pat is the President of Bohse & Associates, Inc., a nonprofit management and training consulting firm based in New Jersey. Her dedication to “Helping Organizations Change Their Worlds” is exemplified by her ongoing work with not-for-profit and government organizations. This experience includes providing consulting and training services related to board development, team building, fundraising, grant writing, marketing, and volunteerism.

Pat has worked in the field of aging for over 40 years. She serves on the Board of Directors for National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Programs (NANASP) in Washington, DC and she served as Association Manager for the 21 County Offices on Aging in New Jersey (AAA’s) from 2004 to February 2016.

 Pat currently serves as an executive director of a non-traditional, nonprofit called SCAN (Social Community Activities Network). In this role she has been able to practice what she has been preaching to her clients all these years. The good news is that her systems and the products that she has developed work.
