Apply to Serve on Aging Commission!
Check out This Opportunity for Those Who are Passionate About Older Adults and Aging Issues The state of Colorado is looking for individuals who are interested in:
- participation in a citizen-led commission focused on issues impacting older Coloradans ● policy development that empowers and supports older Coloradans
- ensuring that Colorado is the best state in which to grow old by working to implement strategies aligned with the Strategic Action Plan on Aging and Lifelong Colorado initiative
In 2022, the modernization of the Older Americans Act (HB22-1035) provided an opportunity to recruit new members to the expanded Colorado Commission on Aging (CCOA). The Act also provides more guidance to the CCOA on its work and how the state, the departments, and various programs will work to support aging Coloradans now and in the future. The new Commission will be composed of all newly selected members and will start on September 1, 2022.
The approximate time commitment for serving on the CCOA includes virtual monthly meetings with a total volunteer time requirement per member of 8-10 hours a month. The state is continuing to accept applications until June 15th.
