Statewide Committees

As part of our commitment to incorporating input from experts around the state, we developed statewide advisory committees. Although the methods used to seat committees will vary by program, they generally consist of Management Council and ITC staff. For some advisory groups this invitation extends further to include district personnel who consume the services provided by the program.

Advisory groups fulfill a valuable purpose. In addition to feedback on the overall health and well-being of the program, these groups are excellent vehicles for sharing solutions, ideas, and best practices. Having input from constituent groups makes each program stronger.
