The advisory council plays an important public relations role, as well as providing CPAH's board and staff with a fresh perspective on various issues and projects. When CPAH formed its advisory council, it was in recognition of the fact that we need the skills and commitment of many people in the community and all their contacts in order to carry out our mission.
We also realize that many people who could offer CPAH support do not have the time to participate on the board, have already served in that capacity, or are investigating whether they wish to make that commitment. By creating this advisory council, we hoped to access the power, expertise, and energy of those people without asking for the type of commitment required for a board member.
