Union County Older Adult Interagency Council Meeting

August 14 at 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

History

The Union County Older Adult Interagency Council held its first meeting on December 14, 1987. The organizational minutes state that the purpose of the council is as follows:

  • Knowing each other and services attached
  • Better utilize staff and money
  • Identify and advocate for additional services for clients

It was determined that knowing each other has to be a part of the program in order to better get services for our clients.

The organizational structure for the Union County Older Adults Interagency Council was as follows:

WHO:              Representative from agencies/organizations that provide services for older adults.  Anyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

WHAT:            An organization to:

  • Know the services/agencies working with the county and the staff providing the services – information sharing
  • Identify and advocate for additional services/agencies needed in the county for older adults
  • Coordinate existing services/resources

WHEN:           Monday, August 14, 1:30pm.  (The Council will meet every other month, the second Monday, at 1:30pm.)

WHERE:       Veteran’s Office, 500 N Main St # 14, Monroe, NC 28112; The meeting will rotate around to the various agencies. The host agency for each meeting will be determined at the beginning of each planning year.

The goals of the Interagency Council have remained the same – to work together to remain up-to-date regarding staff and services available for our clients. By networking, we may all be aware of the services provided in our county and the contacts for those services.  Because we represent so many services and agencies, as a group we can be a strong advocate for our clients.

Let’s renew our commitment to the older adults in our area by agreeing to work together to advocate for older adult needs.

Meetings are held six times each year. Please join us.   If you have ideas or suggestions for meetings, please call or email Linda Smosky, Council on Aging at 704-292-1797 or smosky@coaunion.org
