The Community Advisory Council (CAC) provides guidance to the Center for Disabilities, ensuring what we do is responsive to the needs and interests of people and communities across South Dakota. As part of their commitment, CAC members:

  • Review training and informational resources
  • Approve annual and five-year plans
  • Meet quarterly, twice in-person and twice by telephone or videoconferencing

To learn more about becoming a CAC member, contact Wendy Parent-Johnson at wendy.parentjohnson@usd.edu.
