About Us

The Commission on Women, Children and Seniors (CWCS) was formed under P.A. 16-3, which during the 2016 legislative session consolidated six legislative commissions into two. The CWCS operates with an expanded mandate that includes key elements of those of the former Permanent Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW), the Commission on Children (COC) and the Commission on Aging (COA). The CWCS will be advised by a 63-member board whose membership will initially include commissioners with unexpired terms from the three previously existing commissions.
