George Zuber Joins the Board of Directors at SAGE

Jerry Chasen joins SAGE as the new director of legacy planning.

[New York, NY] Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) announced today that George Zuber—a longtime LGBT advocate and the first SAGE board member from Fort Lauderdale, Florida—has joined its national Board of Directors. SAGE is the country’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults. SAGE recently unveiled a three-year strategic plan to build on its historic successes and support the millions of LGBT older people who are aging across the country.

“George Zuber brings a wealth of expertise that will deeply benefit SAGE’s work on behalf of LGBT older people.   Fort Lauderdale is an especially important community for SAGE as one of six cities across the country that is hosting our SAGEWorks program; welcoming George to SAGE’s Board will make our connection to the Fort Lauderdale community even deeper.  We are thrilled that he is joining SAGE’s Board of Directors,” said Michael Adams, executive director at SAGE.

Zuber is a former board member of Lambda Legal and a trustee of the Actors Fund since 2006. He has more than 30 years of professional experience as a Certified Public Accountant and recently retired as a partner in the New York City Office of Deloitte where he provided audit services to many valued clients. He also recently specialized in forensic investigations and dispute services. Additionally, Zuber served on the Deloite Touche Tomatsu Global Executive Committee as the firm’s specialist in arbitrations and as the Diversity & Inclusion Partner.

 “I am honored to help further SAGE’s efforts to improve the lives of LGBT older adults nationwide and excited to be continuing the charge in Florida. I hope that my experience will add to an already stellar board of directors,” said Zuber.

Former SAGE Board Member Jerry Chasen, also of Miami, has joined SAGE as the director of legacy planning, where he will develop and grow SAGE’s planned giving programs. Having worked for many years as an estate planning attorney with a focus on LGBT families and charitable gifts, he is well versed in the legal and practical issues that this type of planning presents.

“Jerry brings extensive experience in estate planning that will help LGBT people around the country to enhance their legacies and ensure that generations of LGBT elders have the supports they need to age successfully,”  said SAGE Senior Director for Development Kenneth Cox.

On January 31, 2013, SAGE will be hosting “SAGE & Friends” in Miami. SAGE board members and staff will gather with Florida supporters for a discussion on LGBT aging issues. For more information on the event, visit sageusa.org.
