State legislators (and candidates) are invited to attend informal advocacy sessions with the Johnson County Commission on Aging (COA) on Wednesday, Sept. 14, or Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016. The meetings, which are open to the public, will be held in Room 1055 of the Sunset Drive Office Building, 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe (northwest of the intersection of 119th Street and Ridgeview Road). Each session will begin with a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m., followed by an informal advocacy discussion from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The business meeting will start at 10:15 a.m.; legislators are invited to stay.
The meetings will provide an opportunity for commission members to talk with legislators and candidates about state issues, advocacy, and other topics of interest to older adults in the county. The sessions also provide an opportunity for legislators to share their viewpoints and perspectives with the COA, exchange thoughts, and dialogue about issues of concern. The COA is appointed by the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners to provide information, guidance, advice, and support to the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging.
