The Cook County Council on Aging Board of Directors is looking for new members. We currently are in the midst of strategic planning and visioning for the future needs of our community. We realize the days of the traditional Senior Center are gone and we are much more than a Senior Center.
Consider becoming a Board of Directors member to get in on a new vision for who we are, what the future needs and wants in our community are, and how we do this. All ages are encouraged to apply.
The Cook County Council on Aging is a 501(c) 3 organization that oversees the Senior Center and the First & Second Thrift Store. The Board of Directors works closely with the Director in areas of programs and services, finances, and policies and procedures for the two entities. The First & Second Thrift Store is an independent program of the Cook County Council on Aging and helps support financially the Senior Center as well as many other non-profits.
All Board of Director members are volunteers who care about our community. We are looking for Board members from all Districts of Cook County. The Board of Directors meets monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 9am at the Senior Center. Other meetings may be scheduled as needed. New terms start January 1st. 2017.
If you are interested in planning who we are into the future, stop by the Senior Center or email for an application. If you have questions or ideas for us, please call Bev 218-387-2660. We want you to be a part of who we are, after all this is a public organization and building for use by all in the community.
