Advisory Council

What is the Advisory Council?

The Advisory Council is a vital component of any successful community education program. Council members come from all walks of life, bring a variety of skills and viewpoints, and represent the many different constituencies throughout the community. Members often have their fingers on the pulse of what is happening community-wide. As such, members are in a unique position to communicate needs to Community Education management and staff. Its principal responsibility is to link identified needs with identified community resources.
