Call for Applications: PPACG Community Advisory Committee Opening
Colorado Springs, CO – The Community Advisory Committee serves as the formal mechanism for the active participation of citizens in the planning, promotion, and evaluation of activities of the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments. The CAC is a non-technical body comprised of volunteers who offer a citizen’s perspective on issues such as transportation, the environment, economic development and military impact planning in the Pikes Peak region. The CAC also ensures the responsiveness and accountability of government, helps create better plans and activities, and generates support for regional cooperation.
The CAC nominates citizens-at-large, and member governments and community organizations nominate their respective representatives. The Board of Directors approves all nominations.
CAC members are expected to:
- Identify problems and needs within their respective communities that relate to PPACG programs
- Generate new ideas and alternatives for PPACG action
- Review and evaluate PPACG planning products and activities
- Recommend priorities for allocation of PPACG program funds
- Share information about PPACG programs with respective communities and organizations
- Advise PPACG on appropriate public involvement strategies and activities
- Advocate a regional perspective for problem-solving
- Ensure a broad-based, inclusive committee environment
The committee meets on the last Wednesday of the month at 3 p.m. CAC Terms are 3 years and are limited to 2 terms. The CAC is currently seeking one at-large citizen representative to offer a citizen’s perspective on issues such as transportation, the environment, economic development, and military impact planning in the Pikes Peak region.
To apply, please submit a letter of interest, short bio and resume to Jessica McMullen, JMcMullen@ppacg.org by July 13th at 5 PM.
