Harold Mast, Kentwood resident and current Kent County Commissioner, was recently appointed by Governor Snyder as Chair of the Commission on Services to the Aging.

“Harold Mast is an outstanding choice to serve as chair of the commission,” said Kari Sederburg, director of the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging. “We are thankful for his willingness to serve and look forward to working closely with him to provide resources and support to older adults throughout Michigan.”

Mast will lead the 15-member board as they advise the governor and legislature on the coordination and administration of the state’s older adult programs as well as changes to federal and state programs related to aging.

Commission members are appointed by the Governor and serve three year terms (that will expire in 2015). Governor Snyder recently appointed four members and re-appointed a fifth member. All selections are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.

Mast has experience working with older adults in West Michigan. He was a member of the Board of Directors at the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan for over ten years where he served as treasurer. He is also a Board Member of the Alliance for Health of West Michigan. He currently is owner and president of Harold Mast Consulting LLC where he works with the Hispanic Center of West Michigan and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority on affordable housing projects. Previously, he served as the executive director for Genesis Non-profit Housing Corp. and held various leadership potions at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services.

Other appointees include Michael Bartus (Bloomfield Hills), Donna Murray-Brown (Detroit), Renee Parnell (Niles), Patricia Rencher (Detroit) and Donald Newport (Greenbush).
