Council of Governments & Advisory Council

The Governing Bodies of the Olympic Area Agency on Aging are a Council of Governments comprised of one county commissioner from each county – Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, and Pacific Counties.  The Council of Governments is the decision-making body.  The Advisory Council is comprised of 4 representatives from each county, and a region-wide representative for each of the following groups: Tribes, Adults with Disabilities, Minorities, and an elected official.

The Council of Governments meets the first Thursday of each month (normally via teleconference). The Advisory Council usually meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month – currently via Zoom.  In person meetings, when held, will be at the Shelton Civic Center, Shelton, WA.  in person meetings may be changed to a conference call based on weather or other considerations.
