Meral Clarke

Founder and Exec. Director, EngAGE Senior Advocacy

Founder and Advocate

Meral Clarke has over two decades of management experience in the academic and corporate arenas writing and teaching in the post-baccalaureate level and in the recruiting field.

Currently, Meral has founded and is acting as Executive Director of EngAGE Senior Advocacy (ESA), a 501(c)4 non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and advocating for the sizeable elderly population residing in the middle of the financial spectrum through community outreach, legislative lobbying, and corporate involvement. ESA's core mission is to assist this growing sect of the population by advocating for allotments, through legislative means and corporate sponsorships, for accessibility of services to those whose limited income exceeds that of Medicaid and Waiver programs provided by state/federal aid. Her personal experience taking care of two elderly parents was the impetus for creating ESA and initiating advocacy on behalf of the senior population.

Additionally, Meral served on the Cobb Neighborhood Safety Commission; Elder Abuse Task Force and the Cobb Senior Services Advisory Board. She served as president of the Marietta Business Association (MBA) in 2011; At-Large Director on the Board of the West Cobb Business Association in 2012; former core member of the Cobb County Coalition of Business Associations (CCCBA); current Steering Committee member for October Haunt; and is an active member of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. She spearheaded the first annual Summer J.A.M. (Joint Association Meeting) working in conjunction with the CCCBA and the Cobb Chamber in 2011.

Meral is a member of the National Aging in Place Council/Greater Atlanta chapter; the Georgia Gerontology Society; CO-AGE: Coalition of Advocates for Georgia's Elderly; and the Cobb Non-Profit Collaborative.
