Executive Committee

Family & Children First Council (FCFC) Executive Committee is a forum for the County systems to establish service priorities and assure the coordination of activities designed to address those priorities. The FCFC Executive Committee is the generator of policy and action, which will drive system change. The members make recommendations that are later ratified by the full FCFC Voting Membership. The FCFC Executive Committee also provides oversight and direction to all Family & Children First Council subcommittees. This committee meets bi-monthly.
