BayPath's Area Agency on Aging is looking for new members to join the Advisory Council to advocate on behalf of older people on issues that affect their lives. Meeting approximately five-six times per year, the Council is a voluntary group of citizens mandated by the Older Americans Act to provide information, guidance, advice and support to the Area Agency on Aging to plan, develop, coordinate and administer services, provided to area elders. The Council fulfills this obligation by working through the BayPath Board of Directors, the Area Agency staff, its own committees and community leadership.
