“I’ve always intended to invest the second half of my career in giving back to the community and sharing my corporate and operational leadership skills. Experience Matters has a solid and impressive foundation, and significant opportunity to leverage the underutilized talent pool of Baby Boomers. I’m excited to be part of its next big chapter, significantly expanding its services, programs and network."
Eric Eilertsen; CEO, Experience Matters
Connecting Talent to Community
In the 1960s and 1970s, baby boomers mobilized and responded to society's challenges. It's time for us to make a commitment again, to create a positive social change through our encore careers. Together we can make our community an even better place to raise a family, get an education, enjoy the environment, and age in healthy ways.
Nora Hannah; Founding CEO, Experience Matters
Putting Skills & Passion to Work
"After a long and successful career in human resources and the military, I moved to Arizona to be with my grandchildren. Experience Matters put my skills to work at Circle the City, and it has been incredibly rewarding."

Building a Stronger Community
"Like most small non-profit organizations, Mission of Mercy focuses our dollars on service delivery -- in our case, free healthcare for the uninsured. Experience Matters provided us with so much more than an Encore Fellow. They enlightened us to the value of engaging the boomer community and gave us the tools to jump-start our volunteer program."
Catherine Amiot; Mission of Mercy
