Advisory Council provides guidance concerning short and long term policy regarding membership, administration, governance, finance, and operations. The Advisory Council participates in fundraising, budget deliberations, strategic planning, and providing leadership and guidance in decision-making.
The advisory council convenes twice each year and members will remain in on-line contact as needed between meetings. Members are drawn principally from policy and private sector circles and represent persons particularly well-suited to give the Director counsel on how to build a thriving, sustainable organization in line with Meridian 180‘s mission. Members serve for four year fixed terms which are renewable but can be terminated at any time at the election of the Director. Membership on the Advisory Council shall be contingent on attending a minimum of three Council meetings during the four year term, serving as an advocate internally and externally, and contributing to online forum discussions at least four times per year.
