Clackamas County Aging Services Advisory Council

This council has fourteen vacancies each of which carries at three-year term. This council is committed to ensuring that council membership reflects the diversity of Clackamas County residents.  The council actively seeks members from all regions of the county, all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and cultures. The lived experience of council members is valued, including but not limited to experience living with a low income, being housing insecure, transit dependent, socially isolated, living with a disability, and being a caregiver. Members are encouraged to bring their lived experience to the council discussions while considering the best way forward for all Clackamas County seniors.

The council advises county agencies on matters that impact seniors and disabled persons. Council members participate in the evaluation of various aging related programs in the county, including senior centers, caregiving services, health issues, and volunteering opportunities. It meets the third Monday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., except July and August.

The application deadline is April 30. For more information please contact Amy Kelsey at akelsey@clackamas.us, or 503-650-5643.
