BACKGROUND: 

In accordance with the Clark County Code 2.07.040, the Board of County Commissioners appoints eleven members to the Department of Family Services (DFS) Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) to offer opinions and recommendations concerning the facilities, services and resources provided by DFS.  The eleven members represent the following groups: court appointed special advocate (1 member); foster and adoptive parent (1 member); local juvenile probation services (1 member); parent advocate (1 member); private provider of mental health care (1 member); Clark County School District (1 member); youth with foster care experience (1 member); general public (2 members); and child welfare advocates (2 members).

The six vacant positions on the CAC are: two general public; two child welfare advocates; one local juvenile probation services; and one Clark County School District.  There are three applicants who are qualified individuals. Matthew Cox, previously appointed to the CAC as a child welfare advocate member, has requested to be reappointed. Andre Bailey, previously served as general public member, has requested to be reappointed. Staff recommend that Matthew Cox and Andre Bailey be re-appointed in the positions they previously held. 

The other qualified individual - Stephanie Charter- has submitted an application to be appointed to the CAC.  Stephanie Charter is qualified to serve on the CAC as a local juvenile probation services member.  Therefore, Staff respectfully recommend that Stephanie Charter be appointed to the CAC as a local juvenile probation services member.
