SAGE Metro Detroit Seeks Board Members

By |2016-03-31T09:00:00-04:00March 31st, 2016|Michigan, News|

DETROIT – SAGE Metro Detroit is seeking qualified individuals to serve on its Board of Directors.
SAGE Metro Detroit values a diverse and inclusive Board of Directors. The organization believes a diverse and inclusive board will help SAGE more effectively develop as an organization and provide greater innovation and creativity in the development of relevant programs and services for a diverse LGBT older adult community living in Metro Detroit.
All those interested in serving on the board, especially those from historically under-represented communities who offer unique experiences and perspectives, are encouraged to apply.
SAGE Metro Detroit was established in 2015 and grew from the roots established by the LGBT Older Adult Coalition, founded in 2010. SAGE Metro Detroit works to ensure no aging LGBT adult will face isolation, be silenced or be denied LGBT culturally competent medical and care services. The organization also informs and influences the state on LGBT aging through community-based, local and state advocacy efforts; provides leadership and education to organizations, service providers, faith institutions and businesses on the aging LGBT population; introduces professional services and programs to aging LGBT individuals in Metro Detroit; and empowers LGBT older adults to make important life decisions and to advocate on behalf of themselves.
In order to be considered for the position, applicants need to submit a completed nomination form and will soon hear back from the board chair. After an initial meeting with the applicant, the board will then consider their application and will then notify them of their board status.
Interested applicants should visit http://www.SAGEMetroDetroit.org for more information on the organization and its moving parts. Questions about the application process are to be directed to Kathleen LaTosch, board chair, at klatosch@gmail.com.
