The Member Advisory Council
Our Member Advisory Council give members a voice in our projects. Family members and caregivers can also be a part of the council. Council members come from different communities and areas. The useful insight they give helps us serve our members better. This gives us new ways to think about how we:
- Provide member education
- Outreach to members
- Address the needs of members
- Work through service challenges
- Work with community partners
We make sure that programs and services we offer are member-reviewed and member-driven.

How Long Has Colorado Access Had a Member Advisory Council?
We have always asked for feedback from our members. This is important to us. We have done this through our Partnership meeting. We have been having these meetings for years.
Our new Member Advisory Council started in August 2017. We strongly believe that when we include members when we develop our projects and programs, we improve the services we offer.
Who Can Go to the Member Advisory Council Meeting?
The meeting is held monthly but only members of the Member Advisory Council and our Program Improvement Advisory Committee (PIAC) are allowed to go to the actual meeting. This is due to the private business information we talk about.
The Partnership Meeting
The Partnership meeting gives our members and their family members or caregivers the chance to meet with us. The can also learn about our projects and programs. We invite guest speakers We also have a resource fair each year as part of it.
When and Where Is The Partnership Meeting?
We have a meeting four times a year. We invite all of our current members to come to the meeting. We do this through our Regions newsletter. The exact date, time and location of the meeting is in the newsletter. We mail this to every member.
