Council on Aging announces new board and advisory board members

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Council on Aging is overseen by a Board of Trustees which sets policy and provides leadership for the organization in broad categories including agency mission, goals, priorities, executive performance, and financial management.

In addition, four of the five counties in the COA service area have elderly services programs that are funded by county tax levies.
