Seeking Silver Haired Legislature Delegates

June 6, 2018 / News


SeniorAge has a couple of openings presently in our Silver Haired Legislature.We are able to appoint individuals to these positions due to the timing of the vacancies. If you have someone that you think would make a great addition to our SHL team, please let us know! Ideally, we would like representation from Oregon, Shannon, Texas, Barry, Lawrence, or Stone Counties in order to have delegates across our territory. However, if we are unable to find individuals in these areas, our bylaws do permit us to appoint from another location if needed.

We also have alternate positions available (where someone could learn the ropes, attend meetings, but just wouldn't have voting privileges). Eligible delegates need to be 60 or older, interested in senior issues, able to communicate positively with legislators and with other seniors who may be a differing political party, and able to attend several meetings a year (including a 2 1/2 day conference in Jefferson City in October). Please message us if you are interested.
