At the West Virginia Partnership for Elder Living, we have learned that we are conveners. To fulfill our mission "to foster opportunities for West Virginians to live and age with dignity and purpose," we are bringing together organizations, professionals, and other interested individuals in order to find the best and brightest minds, knowing that the brightest minds, focused on elder issues and working together, can best address the task of finding new ways forward. Because of this, WVPEL has become a credible resource for policy makers, serving as a strong voice for aging issues statewide.

Our members have the opportunity to be a part of this voice, providing their input on matters that impact aging in our state and beyond.

Membership Levels
