The NGO Committee on Ageing is an important voice for the elderly and ageing issues at the United Nations.    Dr. William Smith and Katie Weiss are IAHSA representatives on the NGO Committee on Ageing, making sure that issues pertaining to ageing service providers are included in the on-going dialogue with the high ranking UN delegates.

Recently the Committee addressed the important issue of ageing in the workplace.  As the world’s population ages and the number of young workers decreases, it will be increasingly important for employers to provide a work friendly environment for employees of all ages.    Through the good work of Bill and Katie IAHSA will continue to participate in these important discussions.
