Council on Aging

The North Adams Council on Aging consists of eleven members appointed by the Mayor.  Members of the Council on Aging serve five-year terms and require reappointment by the Mayor.  Vacancies occurring on the Board may be filled in the same manner, but only for the balance of an unexpired term.

The Council on Aging is responsible for understanding, supporting, strengthening, and improving the lives of North Adams residents who are 55 or older through advocacy, communication and collaboration.  Council on Aging members help to identify unmet needs among the senior population, and work with the staff of the Mary Spitzer Senior Center to develop and implement programs and services that help to meet those needs.
