ADVOCATES FOR IOWA’S SENIORS ARE NEEDED!
Southwest 8 Senior Services, a member of the Iowa Association of Area Agencies on Aging is seeking passionate, engaged citizens who care about the needs of older Iowans to join our Advocacy Team!
We are in need of volunteer advocates in southwest Iowa who live in or near the newly designated Iowa House Districts 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, and 24 and Iowa Senate Districts 8, 9, 11, and 12 to help us communicate with our candidates and elected officials about issues that affect Iowa’s seniors.
This is a great opportunity for any older Iowan, a family caregiver of an older Iowan, or any Iowa resident who cares about the care and support of our state’s elderly population.
We will be holding an Advocacy Training on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 1:30pm at Southwest 8 Senior Services in Council Bluffs.
