Define Older Adult (80144-GA-¶710.3)

Amend ¶710.3 as follows:
¶710
3. All youth representatives (¶ 256.3) elected to general agencies shall be at the time of organizational board meetings twelve to sixteen years of age.  All young adults (¶ 256.3) elected to general agencies shall be at the time of organizational board meetings seventeen to thirty years of age.  All older adult representatives (¶705.1.b)(6)) shall be at the time of organizational board meetings at least sixty five years of age.

Rationale

Addition of this definition will remove any question about who qualifies as an older adult which will be parallel to existing definitions of other age categories.
