STAFF REPORT ON CONFERENCE FINDINGS. APPENDIX II.
National Council on the Aging, Inc., New York, NY.
CONFERENCE SPEAKERS, PANELISTS, AND WORKSHOPS WERE ASKED TO FOCUS ON THE PROBLEMS OF THE 45-PLUS AGE GROUP AND TO MAKE SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS ON PUBLIC POLICY, LEGISLATION, AND PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RESEARCH, PROGRAM AND ACTION. IN ADDITION, STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS WHICH WERE IMPLICIT IN THE PROCEEDINGS WERE INCLUDED. UNDER EACH SUB-HEADING, PROPOSALS WERE LISTED IN ORDER OF RECOMMENDED PRIORITY. WHENEVER APPROPRIATE, STAFF SUGGESTED THAT RESPONSIBILITY BE ASSUMED BY A GOVERNMENT AGENCY. THERE WAS STRONG FEELING THAT A PROLIFERATION OF AGENCIES WAS NOT DESIRED. MANY OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS CALLED ON THE NATIONAL COUNCIL ON THE AGING (NCOA) FOR ACTION. OTHERS, WHICH REQUIRED INITIATIVE OUTSIDE THE GOVERNMENT, WERE ARBITRARILY ASSIGNED TO NCOA, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO OTHER NATIONAL AGENCY CONCERNED WITH THIS AGE GROUP. THE NCOA WAS NOT EQUIPPED TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE ASSIGNMENTS UNLESS LONG-TERM FINANCING WAS POSSIBLE. CONSIDERATION OF THIS QUESTION WAS RECOMMENDED TO THE NCOA AND HOC ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON THE NCOA-OMPER OLDER WORKER REEMPLOYMENT PROJECT WHEN IT MET TO CHART ACTION TO IMPLEMENT THE CONFERENCE FINDINGS. THIS REPORT WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MANPOWER TRAINING AND THE OLDER WORKER, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 17-19, 1966. (PT)
