• Advisory Council members are volunteer citizens who represent older adults within our community. We like to see members from each area of Central Oregon to represent voices from the residents of each community. 

The Advisory Council for the Council on Aging of Central Oregon ensures community input and participation in the development of priorities and the delivery of services. The Advisory Council also reviews and comments on policies, programs, and actions that affect older persons.  The Advisory Council comprises a maximum of 15 members, fifty percent of whom are age 60 or older. Terms of membership are limited to a three-year period; members can serve no longer than six consecutive years on the Council.
