September 27, 2016 | The Aging Action Initiative(AAI) Steering Committee presented a new strategic direction to a key group of AAI Workgroup members. The Workgroup Gathering included key workgroup members for discussion and feedback of the 2.0 strategic plan.
Our vision is a county-wide, age-friendly environment, especially for those in need, collectively created by a strong, diverse network through a system-wide approach to education, advocacy, and coordinated services
AAI 1.0 focused on issue areas not already addressed by other groups: Nutrition, Mental Health & Dementia, Information & Assistance, Economic Security. Four workgroups were created across each issue area. Workgroup members co-created collective actions that could be planned and completed within one year.
AAI 2.0 will focus on bringing the voice of aging to every community issue. Workgroup members will co-create joint outreach and advocacy; and set and track system-wide collective impact objectives. The goal is to unite existing initiatives and services to address the aging crisis in Marin.
It was also announced that the Steering Committee and County of Marin seeks a person or organization to provide leadership, coordination and administrative support to the Aging Action Initiative. To read about the Request for Proposal, click here.
