Commission on Aging

The Commission on Aging is the policymaking body that oversees the Milwaukee County Department on Aging. 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.
