The Agency has an eighteen member Advisory Council that provides input and advice to the Agency staff and makes funding and legislative recommendations to the Agency and the Agency’s board.
The LMTAAA Advisory Council meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:30 am to noon. The schedule is subject to change.
The Council meets the first Wednesday of each month at the AAA office in Olympia from approximately 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Members are assigned to committees covering such topics as health promotion, small project support and public information. Members are not paid, but automobile mileage is offered to offset the cost of attending meetings.
The LMTAAA seeks Council member volunteers with experience and personal interest in issues facing seniors and younger disabled people in the community. The ability to participate and regularly attend monthly meetings is a consideration. Six people from each county are appointed to a two-year term and can be re-appointed up to three terms. Council members offer a tremendous value to the Area Agency on Aging and in return, they will learn a great deal about our State’s aging and long-term care system.
