County seeks volunteer for Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council

The Lewis County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is seeking a volunteer interested in representing Lewis County on the Lewis-Mason-Thurston Area Agency on Aging (LMTAAA) Advisory Council.

The LMTAAA is a governmental agency sponsored by the three counties to manage, monitor, plan, fund, coordinate and advocate for services and programs that serve the elderly and younger disabled persons.

The LMTAAA Advisory Council meets from 9:30 a.m. to noon the first Wednesday of each month at the AAA office in Olympia. Members are assigned to committees that cover topics such as health promotion, small-project support and public information. Members are not paid, but LMTAAA offers mileage reimbursements to offset the cost of attending meetings. Appointees can serve up to three consecutive two-year terms.

Applications can be found online at https://lewiscountywa.gov/offices/commissioners/advisory-boards-and-commissions/forms/. Applications should be sent in duplicate to the BOCC and the LMTAAA via email at committees@lewiscountywa.gov and charyl.warriner@dshs.wa.gov. (Please include “LMTAAA” in the subject line, and please be sure to send your application to both email addresses.)

Applications are due by 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020.

Additional details about the LMTAAA Advisory Council can be found online at https://www.lmtaaa.org/advisory-council.
