AARP Tennessee Executive Council


Dr. Nelvia Brady-Hampton was appointed to the AARP Tennessee Executive Council in January 2013 as the West Division Volunteer Director. Prior to this appointment, Dr. Brady-Hampton founded and served four years as President of AARP Tennessee's newest chapter, Cordova Chapter #5449. Currently, through her roles on the AARP Executive Council and West Division Volunteer Director, Dr. Brady-Hampton is working to implement aspects of AARP’s Livable Communities initiative in the historic Orange Mound Community in Memphis, TN. “A livable community is one that has affordable and appropriate housing, supportive community features and services and adequate mobility options which together facilitate personal independence and the engagement of residents in civic and social life.” She is working to draw attention to issues, to join forces with others who share similar concerns and help to empower community groups. Prior to her retirement and relocation to Tennessee, she served as Chancellor of the City Colleges of Chicago, the nation's third largest community college system.

In 2003, Dr. Brady-Hampton was officially named a HistoryMaker and added to the list of prominent African Americans who have made an impact on various aspects of U.S. history.
