Vacancies On Boards - Commission on Aging

The new board will consist of 4 members that demonstrate professional expertise in the following areas:

  • Healthcare Expertise:  Given the anticipated growing healthcare needs of the senior population in the county, a member of the COA Advisory Board should have professional knowledge and training in healthcare.
  • Compliance/Legal Expertise:  Due to the complexity of legal compliance, a member of the COA Advisory Board should be able to assist in evaluating compliance with best practices and legal requirements of the contracts entered into with the COA. 
  • Accounting/Financial Expertise:  As the COA receives public taxpayer dollars through the dedicated millage, it is essential that a member of the Advisory Board have current expertise in the area of finance and accounting. 
  • Regional Knowledge of Commission on Aging Services:  Given that the COA is designated to provide services to Grand Traverse County resident over the age of 60, it is imperative, that member of a partner agency be appointed to this Board.  The partner agency works in coordination with the COA in terms of contracting and funding and can provide additional insight into available resources, carries knowledge of what other communities are doing, and can link available resources and services across the region to seniors in the county.
