The Long County Board of Commissioners Invite the Public to apply for the following
“Coastal Area Aging Advisory Council” Seat.
The Coastal Regional Commission (CRC) provides programs to older adults and caregivers in our region (mainly through contract vendors) with more than 18 service providers throughout the nine county region. One of the requirements, by statutes in the Older Americans Act and the State Office of Aging Regulations, is to have an active Aging Services Advisory Council.
The Term of Membership for the Aging Advisory Council is three years. Members may serve consecutive terms as long as they are in good standing, by attending the meetings. The appointed/ reappointed members must be over 60 years in age and should be a consumer, aging advocate, other interested individual, or local elected official.
The role of the Council and its members is very important as it meets with the staff from time to time to review budgets, get updates on new programs, and provides input on how current and new programs are developed. These activities enable the CRC to provide better services to the older adults in our community. The Council must meet quarterly and the meetings are generally held on the fourth Tuesday of every January, April, July and October, beginning at 10:00 am at the Richmond Hill City Center.
Long County has two vacancies to fill. If you are interested please see below.
