The Strategic Partnership Advisory Committee is composed of individuals participating in our Partnership Program that are interested in guiding The Council's efforts in the support area. The committee is open to all representatives from companies/ organizations enrolled in the Partnership Program and who are invited by The Council to sit on the committee.
