Commission on Aging

The Commission on Aging is a 16-member advisory and planning body. The Commission is responsible for developing and implementing a coordinated human service system of communitybased services for Milwaukee County residents aged 60 and older. Commissioners are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Board. Commissioners are selected based on their proven interest and dedication to aging issues. They represent a diverse segment of the population with respect to age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status and residence within the County.
