The CDCI Community Advisory Council provides feedback to CDCI leadership on the work we do, and the work we should be doing.

The Council is made up people with disabilities, their family members, or professionals in the field, who provide their opinions and leadership on disability issues in Vermont. Self-advocates and family members are offered a stipend for their participation on the council.

The CDCI Community Advisory Council (CAC):

  • helps us set our priorities for work each year

  • reviews the work we do, four times a year

  • provides feedback on on our work

  • advocates for people with disabilities

  • and helps connect us to the larger Vermont community.

The CAC does this by meeting four times per year and coming to other CDCI meetings and events.

Pre-Meeting Tasks for Council Members and CDCI Staff

CDCI will send out an agenda and materials at least two weeks before every CAC Meeting. Before meetings, CAC members can:

  1. Review the minutes from the last meeting.

  2. Read the new agenda.

  3. Decide if you want to meet with someone from CDCI to review the agenda or materials together.

  4. Look at any other items CDCI has sent with the agenda.

  5. Write down any questions or comments you have about the minutes, agenda, or materials. CDCI will try to ask for specific feedback, but we welcome any other comments or questions you have! If we can't discuss something in the meeting, we will find a time to share it.

Question mark in a circleIf you'd like the materials on this website in a different format, or have other questions about accessibility, please email Audrey Homan.
