Aging Advisory Council

Being a designated Area Agency on Aging, by the North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), we are guided by the Older Americans Act.  It requires that we have an advisory board with a certain make-up of community representatives.

Our Advisory Council has up to 18 members representing all four counties.  At least 51% of the members must be 55+ in age.  Included in the member listing are a representative from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and a local representative from the NC DAAS.  An elected official from the LOSRC Council also serves on the Advisory Council.  The Chair of the Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council serves on the LOSRC Council.

The Advisory Council usually meets quarterly on the second Thursday of the month from 9:30 – 11:00 am, location to be determined.  These meetings are held in January, April, July and October.

If you are interested in becoming an Aging Advisory Council member, please contact LeeAnne Tucker.
