The Mission of the Alliance is to identify needs of aging Oklahomans, to educate on issues, and to advocate for solutions.
The Alliance on Aging incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1983. The initial members were Area Aging Agencies, AARP of Oklahoma and a diverse group of individuals and organizations throughout the state. The first president of the Alliance was the executive director of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches. Vivian Smith who had been involved in issues that impacted older Oklahomans since 1973 when Vivian served as founding board member of the Daily Living Center in Oklahoma City. To date, the OAoA's committees have evolved into only one committee, the Alliance's first standing committee which was the Strategy Committee. This Committee currently meets weekly at the Capitol during each Legislative Session and has evolved into a "team" comprised of one member from each Oklahoma Aging Partnership(OAP) organization: the Oklahoma Alliance on Aging(OAoA), the Oklahoma Silver Haired Legislature Alumni Association (OSHLAA), and the State Council on Aging(SCoA).  The Strategy Team has created a large distribution list of organizations, agency employees as well as individual advocates who are interested in legislation that impacts aging Oklahomans. The Strategy Team members offer their support to Legislators who author bills that will have a positive impact on older Oklahomans. Another information item that the Alliance uses to keep its membership informed is the quarterly newsletter. The Alliance on Aging memberships understands the importance of advocacy at the State level. The Alliance, along with the other two member organization's of the OAP, are the eyes, ears and voices for Oklahoma's vulnerable, older citizens.

Comments on Staff & Management
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
I joined in 1989. I have learned more with this organization about how things are accomplished at the State Capitol and about other worthwhile Senior organizations, than any other organization which I belong to. The OAoA is a 'voice' for our senior citizens of Oklahoma. Through their legislative activities, senior Oklahomans have united to protect and preserve our rights. Our organization provides essential and necessary education for our seniors to keep abreast of changes occurring in our state and at a national level.
