  The State Commission on Aging was created by Chapter 581,
Laws 1961. The 7 members of the commission are appointed by
the Governor, subject to Senate confirmation. Members are chosen
on the basis of demonstrated continuing interests in the problems
of the aging which confront the state and its subdivisions and
private agencies.
  The commission is assisted by the advisory Interdepartmental
Committee on Aging. This committee meets at the call of the
commission and makes recommendations regarding the operation
of the programs for the aging. Represented on the interdepart-
mental committee are the administrative heads, or their designated
representatives, of the Department of Public Welfare, the Indus-
trial Commission, the Board of Health, the Board of Vocational
and Adult Education, the Department of Public Instruction, the
University of Wisconsin, the Board of State College Regents, the
Wisconsin and the State Teachers Retirement Boards, and the
Free Library Commission.
  Functions. The State Commission on Aging was created to be
"the mechanism    by which governmental and nongovernmental
agencies may co-ordinate their policies" in regard to the problems
of the aging. To this end, the commission:
   1. Conducts a continuous review of all state programs and
     activities on aging; and makes recommendations regarding
     expansion, consolidation, or reorganization to develop a more
     effective program.
  2. Examines the need for future activities, programs, services,
     and facilities for the aging on the state, local, and voluntary
     levels.
  3. Assists subordinate units of government and nongovernmental
     groups in the development of programs and services for the
     aging.
  4. Gathers and disseminates information about programs, serv-
     ices, activities, and facilities for the aging.

     and understanding of the needs and potentials of the aging.
