Regional Representatives

Regional Representatives are the direct link to the local area family resource centers and networks. Regional Reps ensure statewide communication, representation, and collaboration within the FRCN of CA. Regional Reps serve as Steering Committee Members. Upon receipt of FRCNCA correspondence, the Regional Rep relays correspondence to the FRCs in their region via fax, mail or phone. Regional Reps may, on accsion, gather information for a report or communication to the Steering Committee and/or the full FRCNCA. In turn, Regional Reps may use these guidelines to encourage communication within their region. This format for communication is vital to all statewide networking and representation.

Regional Reps participate in all Steering Committee meetings as active members and attend all meetings of the FRCNCA. Should ar egional rep be unable to attend or participate, all input of their respective region, issues, concerns, activities is expected to be forwarded to the Steering Committee or an alternate representative. The role of the Regional Representative is key to maintaining and enhancing clear and concise statewide representation and partnership.
