SW 8 Senior Svcs seeks Advocates


August 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Officials with Southwest 8 Senior Services, a member of the Iowa Association of Area Agencies on Aging, say they are seeking passionate, engaged citizens who care about the needs of older Iowans to join their Advocacy Team. The organization is 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 Southwest 8 communicate with  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 Iowa’s elderly population.  An Advocacy Training session will be held Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 1:30-pm, at Southwest 8 Senior Services in Council Bluffs.  To register for the training or to learn more about the great opportunity to engage in the legislative process, call Kelly Butts at Southwest 8 Senior Services:  712-328-2540 or 800-432-9209 ext. 1013.
