c. Chair & Staff Reports  
-AAA Board and County Supervisor has nominated Deana Zentner to be on the AAA  
Access Committee. Nomination will be at the AAA Board May 1, 2023 meeting.  
BIO on Deana. Hello, My name is Deana Zentner and I am a senior resident of 22  
years in the Town of Rutland, Dane County. It has been an honor to serve on our town  
board for 5 years. The demographics in our town of approximately 2,000 residents  
indicate a high population of seniors. For 4 years, I enjoyed serving on an area  
Municipal Group that addressed the needs and services within the Oregon Area Senior  
Center. My personal experience includes caring for aging parents, which included  
copious research and extensive hands-on experience. My career background is  
grounded in elementary education. I taught in Wisconsin and also in California for  
several years. I love learning and researching, and would immerse myself in providing  
excellent service in any committee I am in.  
- Access Committee has discussed the need to reach out to diverse communities to  
build partnerships. The reasons for this are:  
To ensure that our programs are culturally responsive and community informed  
To make sure that the whole community knows about AAA’s programs  
So can begin to understand the needs of the aging population in diverse communities  
To this end, as discussed in the Access Committee meeting in March 2023 Claire Purkis  
has reached out to Outreach – which is a LGBTQ+ community organization in Madison  
and Jewish Social Services in order to further build relationships with these  
organizations. Claire has made contact with the Senior Advocate and the Program  
Director and plans to go visit outreach in May and to organize a field trip for the  
committee in late May or June. Claire and Sri are also going to visit Jewish Social  
Services in May and then will organize a field trip for some-time in the next few months.
