Boards, Councils, and Commissions


The Aging Programs within the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services has three advisory boards. Pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-2100, advisory boards provide advice and comment to an executive branch agency or office. An advisory board, commission or council serves as a formal liaison between the agency or office and the public to ensure that the agency or office understands public concerns and that the activities of the agency or office are communicated to the public. An advisory board, commission or council does not serve a regulatory or rule-making purpose. It may participate in the development of public policy by providing comment and advice.



The advisory boards meet quarterly and all meetings are open to the public. All meetings will be held from 10 am to 2pm at the Aging Programs, unless otherwise noted. View directions to VDA.

Upcoming Meetings can be found on the Commonwealth Calendar. You can search by date or by keyword.




Older Adult Financial Exploitation Presentation

Recognizing the need for protection of vulnerable adults, especially those with cognitive impairment, Chris Desimone, a lawyer and a member of the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Commission, organized a panel of experts that included a geriatrician and Virginia State Police Officer to raise public awareness of financial exploitation, the Crime of the 21st Century, at the Virginia Governor's Conference on Aging in May 2017. Goal three of the Dementia State Plan calls for training and includes the objective to provide dementia specific training to professional first responders, financial services personnel, and the legal profession, identifying financial exploitation as an essential topic.
