To all New Members:

I want to welcome and congratulate you on becoming a vital member of the Clackamas County Aging Services Advisory Council! The primary responsibility of this council is to monitor and advise the Clackamas County Social Services Division on the decisions they make as they relate to aging. Our dedicated group meets monthly to identify, discuss, advocate, and work towards finding solutions to the many issues facing our seniors each and every day.

In addition to the Advisory Council, members are asked to serve on one of our subcommittees which are each devoted to a specific topic such as Age Friendly Communities, Transportation, and Nutrition.
