New members sought for Council on Aging

The Snohomish County Council on Aging (COA) is seeking vibrant new members for terms beginning in January 2014. Snohomish County residents interested in the needs and issues facing older persons and younger persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply for COA membership.

The 30-member citizens’ advisory board is a key adviser for the Long Term Care and Aging Office of Snohomish County’s Human Services Department and for the county executive. COA members represent the community, plan funding and program issues, are active in legislative matters, and monitor the quality of programs and services.

New members will begin three-year terms Jan. 1, 2014. The COA meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month (no meeting in December) from 10 a.m. to noon.

Interested residents must complete and file an application form by Friday, Sept. 20, with Snohomish County Long Term Care and Aging. To receive an application, contact Joyce Frasu at j.frasu@snoco.org or 425-388-7377. Applications may also be printed directly from the Snohomish County Council on Aging website at http://bit.ly/r0he0q.
