In early March, 2018 the Ashland Ad Hoc Senior Program Advisory Committee (ASPAC)
completed its duties. One of their final tasks was to help create a standing Senior Program Advisory Committee (S-PAC) for the Ashland Senior Center/Program.
On Wednesday, February 28, an open application process for perspective S-PAC members began and will continue through Wednesday, March, 28. Applications will be reviewed between Wednesday, March 28 and Wednesday, April 4. Interested applicants may visit ashland.or.us/SPAC
for complete information and to complete an application. Hardcopy applications may be picked up at the following locations:

All applications must be received by March 28, 5 p.m. For general information, please call 541.488.5340 or email ParksInfo@ashland.or.us
The purpose of S-PAC will be to advise Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioners on matters related to the Ashland Senior Program. The new committee will be made up of seven (7) members, consisting of five (5) program participant representatives and community partner representatives, with at least two (2), but no more than three (3), from each group. In addition, there will be one (1) Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioner and one (1) City Council liaison. SPAC member terms will be three (3) years, with no member serving more than two (2) consecutive terms.
Once S-PAC members are appointed by Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioners, they will create S-PAC Bylaws, in collaboration with APRC staff and the approval of the Commission, at a regular business meeting. The S-PAC may also choose to develop a strategic plan and revise their mission and vision statement concurrent with the adopted goals of the Commissioners.
The Ashland Senior Center, a division of APRC, is located at 1699 Homes Ave in Hunter Park. Learn more about the Ashland Senior Program at AshlandSeniorCenter.org
