PURPOSE & ROLES
The Director of the Office of Community & Civic Life has convened the Bureau Advisory Committee (BAC) to provide advice and support to the Bureau. The BAC’s role is to:
1. Provide guidance to the Director on the effective use of resources as it relates to the bureau's overall strategic aim and racial equity plan;
a. Review bureau goals, program priorities, and spending;
b. Informed participation in Community & Civic Life's annual budget process;
2. Be an ambassador for the work of the bureau and for the City.
MEMBERSHIP & TERM
BAC’s membership is intended to represent a cross-section of diverse expertise, skill sets, background, and viewpoints. Committee members will serve a two-year term with the opportunity to renew future terms (up to eight years total). There will be 12-15 active members.Per City of Portland requirements, the new BAC membership also includes two Civic Life staff from represented and non-represented positions.
The BAC will begin meeting in October and continue with monthly meetings through the late spring. There may be a reason for twice a month meetings in January due to workload needs related to budget submission, but members will be notified promptly of any additional meetings. Our goal is to have a minimum of six meetings per fiscal year.
