Vendor (Provider) Advisory Committee (VAC)

The Vendor (Provider) Advisory Committee (VAC) is a standing committee of the Central Valley Regional Center Board. At this time, attendance and membership are open. The VAC seeks to provide a diverse provider perspective to the Board as it fulfills its responsibilities on behalf of the individuals served by the regional center. As such, the VAC members select from amongst their membership a Chair who serves on the Board of Directors for a term of not greater than two (2) consecutive years.

In addition to providing advice, guidance, recommendations, and technical assistance to the Board in carrying out its mandated duties, the VAC meeting also serves as a community gathering to discuss practices, provide mutual support and address topics of importance to service providers.

The VAC currently meets six (6) times per fiscal year, typically on the 3rd Tuesday of odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September and November) from 10:00am to Noon unless otherwise specified.  For the current schedule of meetings, posted agendas and approved minutes, please see below.
