The Office of the Seniors Advocate is setting up a council of advisers, and is seeking applicants.
The council will be made up of seniors from around the province who bring experience and perspective from diverse backgrounds, ages, geographical areas and cultures. The council will bring forward issues and concerns from their communities and from their own experience. They will also review projects, reports, communication materials and recommendations developed by the Office of the Seniors Advocate.
The council will meet four times per year, by phone or in person. Advisers are expected to be able to travel to the lower mainland of B.C., read material in English, and use a computer, alone or with assistance.
Seniors who would like to serve on the council of advisers must submit their application form by Dec. 18. The council will be announced in February 2015. Advisers’ terms will initially be one to three years, with three year terms for future appointments.
The application form and details are posted on www.seniorsadvocatebc.ca . Interested seniors can also get more information by phone at 1-877-952-3181 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
