The CAC is a locally-based panel of community leaders, selected to ensure diverse representation, reflective of the community it represents, and contribute a range of lived experience and professional expertise. Their collective experience spans research, health services, social services, policing and licensing, with the common thread of leadership and advocacy in strengthening and connecting communities.
The CAC will explore initiatives that seek to reduce harm from the misuse of alcohol or problem gambling in the local area, connecting with a range of local experts and community groups to investigate and evaluate potential collaborations, partnerships and programs. Their recommendations will help direct our community investment into effective programs that will make the greatest positive impact in that community.
