ITASCSC History and Mission

Older adults from Ela Township traveling through Costa Rica.

ITASCSC was officially recognized by the Township Officials in 1982 and formed as a result of a number of township representatives meeting to address the need to enhance senior services for the growing number of seniors in their communities.


ITASCSC sponsors satellite sessions and informational programs at the Township Officials of Illinois Educational Conference. These programs address issues that affect older adults and are open to all conference attendees.


The mission of ITASCSC is to enable townships to provide services necessary to empower older adults to maintain independent lifestyles within their communities.

  • Act as an advisory group for the establishment of new Township Senior Citizens Services Committees
  • Monitor and advocate for the current and pending legislation related to Senior Services
