The Older Iowans Legislature is a statewide non-partisan, non-profit volunteer organization. Its members advocate for state legislators and the Governor to sign legislation that will result in an improved “Quality of Life for Older Iowans”.

The Older Iowans Legislature places special emphasis on the frail elderly; those citizens who have contributed much to our society, but have exhausted their resources and in need of assistance to lead meaningful lives.

Please take a look at our web site and join our efforts to pursue quality of life for our elderly.

At the conclusion of our annual meeting, we will have election of officers. I will be stepping down as Chair. I feel it is time for new blood and I also wish to do more traveling. I will remain on the board.

I recommend that you elect: Larry Kudej as Chair, Tony Vola as Vice Chair, Ron Jome as Secretary, and Diane Naujokaitisa as Treasurer

I want to thank you for placing your confidence in me to lead this great organization. It has been an honor and a privilege.

All the best to each of you. Stay safe.
