The Family Advisory Council (FAC) was created in 2007 to guide OACRS actions in effectively voicing relevant family and client issues. Each OACRS member is entitled to recommend one family/client representative to the FAC. The FAC assists OACRS and its Board in making decisions and pursuing strategic directions that responsibly reflect family and client concerns and perspectives. It works collaboratively with the CEO and Board to identify issues and participates in the development of policies and position papers.
In addition the FAC provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas amongst its members. The Family Advisory Council meet monthly via teleconference and face-to-face annually at the OACRS conference.
