July 2021 Meeting
Thursday, July 15, 2021, 2 PM


We are meeting virtually.
We have a very short agenda with only two items


1) the nonprofit that facilitates corporations that would like to offer support, volunteers, etc to nonprofits that have a social impact
2) and the offer from the HIV &Aging conference for a free table for organization information.  


The Coalition on Aging Steering Committee Meetings are open to all. Members of the Coalition and ALL recipients of this email announcement are invited—and urged—to attend.

“Golden Generation”

The “Golden Generation” is a group for 60+ LGBTQ seniors and their partners/allies that has been meeting virtually on a weekly basis during the pandemic.  The group is planning to resume in person twice-a-week sessions in August.  More information on the “Golden Generation” is available on our website under the Senior Resources>Austin Resources>Senior Services tab.  The website will also be updated with the dates and times for in person meetings as soon as that information is available.

Steering Committee Membership


      Membership is open to all regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, or gender identification. Meetings are open to all. The Steering Committee meets monthly, almost always less than two hours.  Currently those meetings are held virtually so there is no time spent in traffic.  It’s a great opportunity to be more involved in the direction of the Coalition and get better acquainted with folks like yourself who are interested in improving the lives of LGBT seniors in Austin
 

If you would like to have more information about serving on the Steering Committee, please contact us at contact@algbtcoa.org
