NISC State Collaborative Member Application

This application is to become a member of the NISC Senior Center Leadership Collaborative. 

The goal of this initiative is to create a cohesive national senior center network organized to participate in a collaborative learning environment to share best practices, national initiatives, strategies and resources to spur innovation and to identify national senior center leaders. 

NISC state appointed collaborative members would be tasked with sharing promising practices from their state, learning from other state leaders, learning about NCOA and NISC initiatives, tools, and resources and then communicating that information back to their state colleagues through their professional network, such as state associations.

NISC believes that diversity enriches our work. We seek to include diverse individuals in terms of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, social economic status, religious affiliation, gender, and ability.  People of color and LGBT individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.
 Collaborative members would be expected to: 
 - Attend quarterly conference call meetings;
 - Support participation in a NISC team by participating or by encouraging others in the state to participate. 
 - Meet in person at the NCOA conference, paying their way; If travel is not possible accommodations may be available for attendance through a zoom conference call.
 - Share information about NCOA and NISC programs and initiatives within their state.

Collaborative members would be elected by their state association or network. When no state organization is available, they would apply for appointment to NISC leadership.
