Advisory Committees

Community Advisory Committee Information:  Board advisory committees are charged with providing advice when the Board reviews policy, resolutions, and direction on a particular topic or district function.

When any district advisory committees is developed, we strive to get a broad representation from across our district and our community; however that is to get varied perspectives, not to enlist individuals as representatives.  All members on committees will participate as individuals and not be expected to speak for or officially represent the opinions of any specific group or affiliation.
