Meet the Director's Advisory Council

The Advisory Council exists to help further the goals of the School. It acts as a body of leadership, influence and support with the external stakeholders the School serves. The Council principal functions include advising the School, through the Director, on issues that have the most significant impact on the accomplishment of the School's goals. They also advise on the School's long-term planning and special initiatives.
