For information on all City Boards & Commissions


Member Qualifications
Commission members must be residents of the City of San José and cannot be City employees. Members should have knowledge in the field of aging and have available time due to the number of meetings, subcommittees, and research needed for full participation.

There is no compensation for serving on the Senior Citizens Commission. However, from time to time, commissioners may be reimbursed for some expenses incurred on City business.

Political Reform Act of 1974
The Conflicts of Interest Section of the Political Reform Act applies to the Senior Citizens Commission. However, commission members are not required to file a Statement of Economic Interests.

Appointment
All applications received are submitted to the Project Diversity Screening Committee for review according to the needs of the commission as specified in a Needs Assessment Memo. Applications will be forwarded to the city attorney for a conflict of interest review and thereafter, the applicants will be asked to appear before the Screening Committee members for an interview. Following interviews, the Screening Committee will develop a list of applicants which will be submitted to the council member liaison to the commission. The liaison will forward the list to the Rules Committee of Council either with or without a supplemental recommendation. The City Council makes the final appointment to the commission based on Rules Committee recommendations.

Attendance
Commissioners are expected to attend all commission meetings. San José Municipal Code Section 2.08.060 specifies that a commissioner who has unexcused absences from any three consecutive regular meetings, or who misses 20% of meetings in one year, is deemed to have resigned from the commission.

For further information about the committee, please contact the committee staff at (408) 535-3570.
