The Region VII Area Agency on Aging is governed by a Board of Directors who assure that the agency is in compliance with Federal and State regulations as well as set the priorities for agency activities. This Board is made up of county appointed representation from each of the ten counties which include: Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Huron, Isabella, Midland, Saginaw, Sanilac and Tuscola. In accordance with the Older American’s Act, the majority of board members are persons who are themselves sixty (60) years of age or older.
Region VII AAA also has an Advisory Council in accordance with the Older American’s Act. Recommendations are made by each county’s leadership with at least 1/2 of the members being age 60 or over. The Advisory Council advocates for seniors, plays a key role in identifying issues of local concern and communicates the concerns to the Area Agency.
