The Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging (COAAA) is Looking for a Union County Representative for their Advisory Council.

The Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging (COAAA) is currently accepting volunteer applications from residents of Union County to fill vacancies on the COAAA Advisory Council. Council members represent the interests of older adults in their specific communities and advise COAAA on services, policies, and programs.

The Council meets eight (8) times a year at 10:30 am on the first Thursday of March, April. May, June, and September, October, November, and December.¬†Meetings are held at the agency’s office on the edge of downtown Columbus with free on-site parking provided.

The deadline for application is December 18, 2013.

Additional information: The Advisory Council functions as a forum for the views of older consumers and fosters a partnership of older adults, community agencies, and local governments. The Council is comprised of 32 members from eight central Ohio counties–Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union.

To be eligible, an individual must be a resident of the county with a vacancy and have an interest in the needs and problems of older adults in their communities. Membership is a volunteer position with a three-year term and a limit of two terms.

Council members are invited (but not required) to participate in meetings with legislators, legislative breakfasts, public hearings and focus groups, as well as attend COAAA’s professional workshops at no charge.

Each year, COAAA honors Council Members in the December meeting with an annual recognition luncheon and keynote speaker at a holiday venue.

COAAA is responsible for administering the Older Americans Act and other funds that promote the independence of older adults. The Agency assists communities with the development and coordination of services, as well as advocacy and planning efforts.

For more information or to request an application, please email or call Bonnie Ackerman, Advisory Council Coordinator: backerman@coaaa.org, 614-645-6149 or 1-800-589-7277.
