The Leadership Coalition on Aging (LCA)’s mission is to enrich the lives of Collier County seniors and their caregivers by way of resource sharing, education, advocacy, and community outreach. 
The coalition currently consists of over 50 organizations serving seniors; including nonprofits, corporate entities, governmetnal agencies, as well as independed advocates. Members have expertiese in a broad spectrum of fields such as health & wellness, home care, legal, financial, senor living, counseling & support, veterans affairs, emergency response, community service, soicla services, recreation, transportation & more. 


Our Steering Committee (SC) is composed of leaders working in our community to advance services for seniors. The SC has twelve seats with a goal to have balanced representation of the nonprofit, corporate and governmental sectors. 

Each leader serves in a volunteer capacity for a two-year term and helps to advance LCA’s agenda through their field expertise and influence. Succession planning is a priority to ensure continuity of leadership. New members can be appointed by the SC, or elected through the general membership, typically in the Fall. New leaders may join and take on a specific open role, or serve in an ‘at large’ capascity. Recruitment strategies promote diversity of expertise, age, culture, beliefs, and social characteristics. Our leadership team invites inquiries & ideas. Please contact us via LCASteeringCommittee@gmail.com
