Consumer Advisory Council

The Boggs Center Consumer Advisory Council (CAC), the majority of which are people with disabilities and family members, provides ongoing consultation and annual program review of Boggs Center activities. This includes active participation in a collaborative planning process for The Boggs Center’s 5-year core grant application, with the CAC helping to create The Center’s vision and identifying the trends and challenges confronting individuals, families, delivery systems and the developmental disabilities community in New Jersey. The CAC meets at least twice a year. In addition, CAC input is solicited for the development and review of a variety of Boggs Center projects and products.
