Its members help to sustain and expand the center’s efforts, access knowledge-based resources, support program accountability through guidance and feedback, and serve as ambassadors in community collaborations.

Meetings are scheduled as needed but no less than once per quarter and may be in person or via teleconference. An agenda and any materials to be reviewed are sent to all participants at least one week prior to each meeting.
