These materials were created to help create more advisory boards like our Bureau of Sages. We have divided them into three stages of advisory board development:
- Building a board
- Operating a board
- Evaluating a board
Researchers, other academic partners, organizations and facilities providing care or services to older adults, volunteers, and older adults participating in advisory boards can use these resources.
We invite you to use these documents free of charge.
Please let us know that you are using them! We are happy to answer your questions and would appreciate your suggestions for additions/improvements.
