of Aging on planning, coordinati­on and delivery of services to older individual­s. The Council’s 21 volunteer members, the majority of whom are required to be age 60 or older, are nominated by the governor and approved by the Senate.

Members of the Council also serve as chairperso­ns for five regional councils with more than 70 volunteers, which meet quarterly. These regional councils gather informatio­n and insights on local needs and service delivery and report their findings to the Council. They also serve as resources for research and community outreach efforts.
