Leadership & Governance

PCA is a private, non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors which directs the development and administration of PCA programs; the Area Plan for Aging Services; and the annual budget.  An Advisory Council provides input to the Board and acts as an advocate for older persons.

President and CEO Najja Orr

Philadelphia Corporation for Aging President and Chief Executive Officer Najja Orr assumed leadership of PCA in April 2020, having previously served as the agency’s chief strategy officer since 2017. Orr joined PCA after a 15-year career at the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging, where he served as director from 2011-2017.

A doctoral candidate at Temple University, he also previously served as board secretary and southeast regional representative for the Pennsylvania Association of Area Agencies on Aging (P4A), tackling issues to benefit thousands of older adults across the Greater Philadelphia Region.
