Policy Advisory Board for Elder Affairs
The Executive Office on Aging receives community input through the Policy Advisory Board for Elder Affairs (PABEA). The PABEA membership consists of older adult consumers, service providers, and others in the field of aging. The Governor, with the consent of the State Senate, appoints all members, except ex-officio members. Ex-officio members are selected from various state departments that work closely with EOA on matters pertaining to aging and family caregiving. The majority of the membership must be age 60 or older, and at least one member must be from each county.
PABEA advises the EOA Director in the following areas:
1. Identification of issues and alternative approaches to solutions;
2. The development of position statements and papers;
3. Advocacy and legislative actions; and
4. Program development and operations.
Each month there is a public PABEA Meeting: PABEA Meeting Agenda: Friday, May 5, 2017
