The Community Advisory Council (CAC) provides input, guidance and feedback to shape the Center for Disabilities' activities and products, ensuring what we do is responsive to the needs and interests of people and communities across South Dakota. CAC members are instrumental in reviewing our products and approving our annual and five-year plans.

The CAC meets quarterly, twice in -person and twice by telephone or videoconferencing. Information and resources are shared on a regular basis and there are ongoing opportunities to contribute and be involved.
