Each of the eight Area Agencies on Aging are represented. There are four at-large members. The appointment term is four years.

Advisory Committee members meet twice a year and occasionally visit senior centers and aging programs. Meeting dates and times can be found on the Nebraska Public Meeting Calendar.
