The Advisory Committee provides information and advice to the Board to assist with its governance and decision making. In fulfilling this purpose, the Committee:
- Ensures two-way communication between Community Councils and the Board by acting as a link to the Board on both successes and concerns identified by Community Councils that have provincial implications for CLBC and those it serves
- Recommends improvements to policy and practice for Board and CLBC staff consideration to enhance the quality of life for people served by CLBC
The Advisory Committee is made up of a single member from each Community Council. Members are appointed for up to two years, but can be re-appointed for up to two more years. The Board may appoint a member at large to ensure there is a member of Aboriginal heritage. The Committee meets four times a year.
Two CLBC Board members attend all meetings but do not vote. They act as a linkage to the Board by updating the Committee on the Board’s work and reporting the Committee’s work to the Board.
