The NCAOA Board strives to keep members informed of vital policy and practice concerns, to provide valuable education and training, and to offer opportunities for all members to help shape the future of Aging in North Carolina. Through representation on regional, state, and national organizations, NCAOA board members serve as an effective voice for the organization and its members.

The NCAOA Board is guided by bylaws, which explain NCAOA's purpose, membership, duties and terms of Board members, Board officers, the Executive Committee, and other committees deemed appropriate by the Board.

We are pleased to serve on the 2015-2016 Board of Directors of the North Carolina Association on Aging. We are proud of our achievements this past year and excited about our goals for the future. Please contact any of us if you have questions, if you would like to serve on a committee, or if you would like to share your ideas or concerns. Let us know how we may assist you and your organization.
