Every year Young at Heart Resources holds regional elections to its Board of Directors. The board is comprised of 9 members representing 18 counties in Northwest Missouri, and each member term is 3 years.

This year there are two vacancies, and current board officer Carma Eagans is up for re-election.

Because no county in Young at Heart’s service area can have more than one representative on the governing board, Intents to Run will be accepted from candidates who reside in the following counties only: Atchison, Buchanan, Caldwell, Clinton, DeKalb, Gentry, Grundy, Mercer, Nodaway, Putnam, Sullivan, and Worth. All other counties are represented by current board members.

If you are interested in running, you can obtain a candidate packet by downloading file included with this post (see below), contacting Janna at jleadbetter@yahresources.org, or by calling 660-240-9400. Candidate packets must be turned in by April 11, 2022. Elections will be held on May 3, 2022.

Additionally, the Young at Heart Resources Silver Haired Legislature, a body of delegates which promotes legislative advocacy for the older adults of Northwest Missouri, is also open to new candidates. If interested in learning more, please contact Freda at fmiller@yahresources.org, or by calling 660-240-9400.

Adults 60 and older residing in our Northwest Missouri service area will be able to cast a ballot at a polling site located in their county. Each county will have at least one polling site, which will be announced closer to the election date.
