Members of the Committee on Ageing - NY represent both international and national organizations, some that are solely concerned with ageing issues while others embody them within a broader framework. Committee members meet on the first Thursday of each month from September through June to hear presentations on critical priorities and emerging issues under discussion at the United Nations.
The Committee also sponsors special events and projects, most notably the annual celebration of the International Day of Older Persons (IDOP) held in early October, to which the public is invited.
Committee membership is open to individuals as well as those persons who represent organizations in formal status with the United Nations. Follow the NGO Committee on Ageing on social media on facebook and twitter.
