CAC burstThe ELARC Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) is made up of adult individuals who are served directly by the Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center. Their role is to give input to the Board of Directors about matters that are important to the individuals that the Regional Center serves. The members of the CAC are committed to expanding their membership, spreading the word about self advocacy, and playing a leadership role in the agency and in the state. Meetings are held every other month.  

The CAC meetings focus on both business and information.  The first half of the meeting is dedicated to discussion and updates from our Consumer Advocate and any other business matter.  Our Executive Director attends these meetings to provide updates on the system; however, she attends every other CAC meeting. The second half of the meeting focuses on a guest speaker presenting on a topic of importance to CAC members. Click here to view our brochure.

CAC meetings are videoconferenced between the Alhambra office Boardroom located at 1000 South Fremont Ave., in Alhambra, 91803 and the Whittier office conference room located at 13215 Penn St #410 in Whittier, 90602.

CAC Meetings are held in English only. If you wish to participate in a language other than English, please RSVP to Elisa Salazar at (626) 299-4772 two weeks prior to the meeting to allow sufficient time for ELARC to make every attempt to meet your request.
  

The Consumer Advisory Committee for 2020!

This is a meeting FOR consumers, run BY consumers. We look forward to seeing you during 2020! The CAC is also a great way to meet other consumers/peers and have a bite to eat. Take a look at our 2020 Save-the-Date flyer!
