The Community Engagement Council consists of committed residents aged 60 or older (or their caregivers) who geographically represent the County’s aging population.
The Community Engagement Council will help drive the work of Age-Friendly Forsyth and be heavily involved in all initiative decision-making processes, as well as bridge work happening within the initiative to community members through local resident groups, which include existing community volunteer groups and residents who would like to be involved.
The primary function of a Community Engagement Council member is to serve as the communication liaison for a designated area. This is accomplished through connecting with residents, hearing and communicating community needs and concerns, and having an active voice in sharing opinions on need areas at council meetings.
If you are interested in serving on the Community Engagement Council, or would like more information, please contact Theresa Hoffman-Makar at Theresa@forsythfutures.org.
