Committee members are family members, self– advocates & agency representative. All agreed whenever possible not to use acronyms. Information was shared about the origin of the committee — the need for an ad-hoc committee to address family engagement and continued participation at Council meetings was discussed during the July Executive Committee meeting. Several committee chairs expressed interest in participating and Marilyn Rubinstein was asked to be the initial chair.
A request was made to the new committee for a family member to co-chair. Thank you to Lynn Decker for stepping forward.
