Program Advisory Board
The Program Advisory Committee (PAC) serves as the leadership body of the Federation's members.  Five members of the PAC also serve as voting members on the Federation’s Board of Directors to ensure that the Board has direct input from the stakeholders and practitioners woking in community schools. It is important to note that the PAC seats are not dedicated to the individual or that person's organization, but are the combination of both person and organization represented.  The following outlines the roles and responsibilities of PAC members:
  
  1. Actively participate in all stakeholder committee meetings and serve as a stakeholder member
  2. Articulate and influence the state and federal policy agenda
  3. Effectively communicate with and between stakeholders and serve as a voice of the stakeholder members to the greater public
  4. Secure endorsement of the Federation's policy agenda from their organization
  5. Invest in moving forward the vision of Community Schools
