More about the Denver Senior Coalition Chapters
The four Denver Senior Coalition Chapters are networking organizations with members ranging from senior housing, home health industry, health and medical services, referral agencies, professional services such as legal and financial and other community based service organizations. Members include both individuals and companies and for-profit, non-profit and government agencies.
The four chapters of the Denver Senior Coalitions are:
- EAST Chapter
Formerly known as East Coalition for Senior Services
- NORTH Chapter
Formerly known as Northwest Denver Council for Seniors
- SOUTHWEST Chapter
Formerly known as Southwest Coalition on Aging
- SOUTH Chapter
The South Chapter is our newest chapter and was formed in 2017
For 2020 and 2021 we are holding one meeting a month bringing all 4 chapters together with a Zoom meeting. These meetings are generally on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
Our membership dues are based on a calendar year and run from January through December. Dues start at $75 for a “One Person Membership, One Company, ONE Chapter for a year.” We also have multi-member and multi-coalition memberships. The majority of the funds we raise through membership go to our Joint Coalition Assistance Fund.

Meeting Dates & Time:
Prior to COVID-19 each Chapter had their own meeting each month. From Octrober 2020 and going into 2021 we are having one monthly meeting where we bring all chapters together in one Zoom meeting. This meeting will be on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
Locations of Meetings
Due to COVID-19 we are not holding meetings at physical locations for the time being.
Joint Coalition Meetings
Due to COVID-19 all of our meetings are joint meetings of all chapters and we will hold one Zoom meeting a month.
The December Holiday Gathering
The December meeting is typically a holiday gathering held in early December at a large retirement community, hospital or other large organization and obviously COVID-19 has changed this for the foreseeable future. For 2020 and probably 2021, our holiday meeting will be held with Zoom and will be on the 2nd Wednesday of the month of December from 9:30AM to 11:00AM. At the holiday meeting we will announce the Joint Coalition Assistance Fund Awardees.
Speakers & Presentations at Meetings
Senior service organizations, senior support companies, business professionals and other related groups are welcome to contact the Speaker and Presentation Directors and request to be a speaker. Note that panel discussions and other types of presentations are considered for the meetings. Currently all of our meetings are conducted through Zoom.
