Community Advisory Committee

Committee Purpose (bylaw excerpt): This committee addresses a variety of issues related to the services which clients receive as a result of Part A and B funding. It ensures that the broadest array of services is provided with the highest possible quality within resource and funding constraints.

Works to ensure that the needs of minority, underserved and underrepresented communities and populations are reflected in the planning and decision-making process of the Council and networks to improve the availability and effectiveness of needed services in both urban and rural areas. The committee also seeks to provide clients with updated resource references and to create opportunities in all Council counties for PLWH participation. Finally, the committee acts as a liaison between planning and service provision by working to ensure access and to eliminate barriers to services for minorities, the underserved and underrepresented populations in both urban and rural communities.
