The African American Council of Elders ~ Wichita/Sedgwick County is seeking nominations for new Elders to serve on the Council.  Founded in 2001, the African American Council of Elders ~ Wichita/Sedgwick County is a collective made up of concerned elders from our community, who have come together for the express purpose of sharing what they’ve seen and learned to help our community grow stronger. They act as an advisory board, offering guidance and leadership on issues affecting our community. They are involved with the youth of our community, the schools, and with other existing organizations wherever and to whatever degree appropriate.

Membership on the African American Council of Elders is open to any member of the community who is 60 years of age or older. New members are nominated by seated members or other members of the community.

For more information on how to become a member or to nominate someone for membership, please contact Queen Mother Genevia Holloway at 684-2382 or Council Administrator Wakeelah Martinez at 308-4185. Nomination forms will be emailed to you.
