Governor Schwarzenegger invites Nominations for WhiteHouse Conference on Aging Delegates
SACRAMENTO – In a move to demonstrate the importance of planning for an aging California, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today announced the opportunity for individuals to apply to be one of 12 gubernatorial delegates to the 2005 White House Conference on Aging (WHCoA).
White House Conferences on Aging are decennial events held to develop policy recommendations in the field of aging. The next WHCoA will be held October 23-26, 2005 in Washington D.C. The theme of the Conference is “The Booming Dynamics of Aging – From Awareness to Action,” which reflects the unique mandate of the Conference to focus on the aging populations of today and tomorrow.
Governor Schwarzenegger will be appointing 12 delegates and 12 alternates to the WHCoA. Since the number of delegates is very limited, careful consideration will be given to the selection of delegates that provide a breadth of experience and knowledge on a range of elder and baby boomer issues.
To be considered for a position, potential delegates will need to mail a completed application to the California Commission on Aging (CCoA). Nominating guidelines and criteria are available by calling the CCoA at (916) 322-5630. The deadline for receiving nominations is May 5, 2005.
