The ICET Board is advised by two Regional Advisory Committees (RACs) comprised of the Mayors, Regional District Chairs and Members of the Legislative Assembly from the region. The RACs meet three or four times a year to review funding applications to the Trust and to provide advice to the Board on strategic issues. The Chairs from each of the RACs attend Board meetings as ex officio members. The Regional Advisory Committees play a key role in ICET’s operations. Their regional knowledge and ground-truth perspective assist Board and staff in better understanding project proposals and regional dynamics, resulting in decisions based on fact. The RACs also bring the region’s voice to the table in the development of strategy and policy, ensuring that no community is left unheard.
