The Northampton Council on Aging (NCOA) is an advisory council for the Northampton Senior Services Department. The NCOA is comprised of nine members whose role is to provide advice, input and feedback to the Senior Services staff. The NCOA meets once a month and meetings are typically held on the second Thursday at 5:00 pm. In addition, members may be involved as volunteers for a wide range of Senior Center programs, events and activities. NCOA members contribute a minimum of two hours per month in support of the Senior Services Department.
