Hollin Hall Senior Center Advisory Council Liaison Program
The Liaison Program began close to 10 years ago when the Council President at that time wanted a better way to communicate questions and concerns from the general membership to center staff and the center’s Advisory Council. On the other side of the coin, a way was needed to help disseminate and share information from the staff and Advisory Council to the general membership.

A list was then created of all recurring programs, activities and club meetings; day/days and time the club meets, room number assigned and club leader’s name. Each Advisory Council member would then be asked to choose several clubs they’d be interested in being a liaison to. To make it easy, for instance, an Advisory Council member could choose an activity they already attend, making it easy to take Center information to that club leader and to take any requests or issues back to the staff and Advisory Council.

The liaison makes occasional visits to the club leader they’re assigned to in order to see if there are any needs or requests, or to communicate any pertinent information from staff regarding policy and procedure.
This streamlined the way information was put out to the membership from the staff and the way staff was able to hear and address the concerns and requests of the membership.
