Seeking Advocates for the Aging

          We’ll all be older someday. And when we are, it will be nice to have had folks who helped make our community ready.

          Clark County is seeking applicants for four openings on its Commission on Aging. The commission manages and implements the county’s Aging Readiness Plan and fosters countywide awareness, dialogue, and insight into challenges and opportunities for residents of all ages, incomes, and abilities.

          Three of the openings are for three-year terms that begin June 1 and go through May 31, 2022. One vacancy will complete an outgoing member’s term beginning immediately and going through May 2020.

          Residents living anywhere in Clark County may apply. People with an interest in issues and advocacy for seniors, related to: housing; transportation/mobility; supportive services; healthy communities; and community engagement; as well as service on public advisory boards are encouraged to apply.

          The commission will focus on healthy communities in 2019 and will explore how the built environment can provide opportunities for better physical and mental health for all ages.

          The commission meets 3:00 to 6:00 PM on the third Wednesday of each month. Additional meetings may require an extra ten hours per month.

          Applicants should submit a résumé and letter of interest to Alyssa Weyhrauch, County Manager’s Office, at [email protected] Applications also may be mailed to P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000. Submission deadline is 5 pm Friday, April 5.

          The Aging Readiness Plan covers access to housing, transportation, a variety of lifestyles, support services, and civic or social engagement. For more on the plan and commission, see www.clark.wa.gov/aging.
