Senior issues to be discussed in Juneau

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Learn about the newly reconfigured Juneau Commission on Aging during a public information meeting Monday, October 9 at 1:30 p.m. in Assembly Chambers


    The Juneau community is invited to attend a dialogue related to senior issues that face the community and how the commission can help address those needs.  The Assembly adopted a resolution on August 21 after a series of public meetings to reestablish the Juneau Commission on Aging.  They serve as an advisory group to the Assembly.  The 9-member commission now includes five members 65 years or older and four members with no age requirement.  They are tasked with building a coalition among established groups and support programs to address the needs of seniors.

    The goal of the meeting is to continue the dialogue with senior members of the community, the agencies and community members who support them and the CBJ.  The Juneau Economic Development Council will also share information related to the senior economy.

    CBJ is also actively recruiting for members on the new commission.  You can apply online at the CBJ board application, bring it to the meeting, or email it to the Clerk's Office at
