ElderSource Board of Director Opportunities:

ElderSource has several opportunities for individuals to become engaged in the important work, discussions and decisions that involve aging issues in the seven counties we serve. We need strong voices, advocates and fundraisers to work with us to carry out our agency’s mission.

The ElderSource Board of Directors is responsible for the oversight and stewardship of the Area Agency on Aging and the Aging & Disability Resource Center. They have the fiduciary responsibility of ensuring these funds are properly managed and well used in providing quality services to those in greatest needed. These groups are primarily funded through state and federal resources, but we can use your help.

ElderSource Advisory Council: 

We are currently seeking volunteer members for our Advisory Council, specifically seniors who reside in St. Johns County.

Duties for an Advisory Council member are to report on the needs of elderly and emerging issues in their respective counties; review and comment on the agency’s Area Plan; study legislative issues and advocate on behalf of the elderly; assist in promoting the mission, programs and activities of the agency; and to educate the public about the needs and the contributions of the elderly.

Members serve as voices for the counties in which they live. Advisory Council members are comprised primarily of individuals over the age of 60 who inform the ElderSource Board and Management of the needs of elders in their community and help with advocating on their behalf.

“Our Advisory Council members are an important asset to our organization,” said Linda Levin, Executive Director of ElderSource. “They are an active voice we need to hear in order for us to stay in touch on the senior issues affecting the communities in which they live.”

Meetings are held the third Thursday of every other month from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the ElderSource offices located 10688 Old St. Augustine Road, Jacksonville. Advisory Council members are reimbursed for their mileage to and from the meeting.
