West Virginia Silver Haired Legislature

PLEASE NOTE:

The West Virginia Silver Haired Legislature has been postponed until further notice.


The West Virginia Silver Haired Legislature is a model legislature, composed of representatives 60 years of age or older, who are elected from throughout the state by their peers. Through this program older adults learn about the legislative process and identify solutions to common problems. The SHL has the potential of 134 representatives, all 60 years of age or older, who are elected every two years from throughout the state by their peers.


For further information on becoming a candidate for the Silver Haired Legislature, contact your local senior center, the Area Agency on Aging for your region, or the West Virginia Bureau of Senior Services at 304-558-3317.
