Working under the direction of locally elected officials of these member governments, the staff plans and administers a variety of federal, state and local programs and services.

The Workforce Development Department receives authority from the Workforce Development Board. The Area Agency on Aging has the following advisory councils: Regional Aging Advisory Council; Regional Nursing Home Community Advisory Committee; Regional Domiciliary Home Community Advisory Committee; and the Senior Tarheel Legislators. All of these groups along with our professional staff will assist you with making important decisions on the delivery of services in these program areas.
