Clark County is seeking four volunteers for the 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.
All positions begin June 1. Commissioners typically serve three-year terms, although one of the positions will complete an outgoing member’s term through May 2024.
Encouraged to apply are county residents with interest and experience in issues and advocacy for older adults; those who would bring ethnic, cultural, social and geographic diversity to the group; or those with outstanding strategic communication and public speaking skills and experience meeting with a wide range of individuals and organizations.
The commission is focusing its 2023 work on completing the first update to the Aging Readiness Plan and an annual theme of community engagement.
Submit a resume and letter of interest to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, at Michelle.Pfenning@clark.wa.gov or mail to P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000.
