The PWSRCAC Board of Directors meets three times each year for two-day meetings. The January meeting is held in Anchorage, the May meeting in Valdez, and the September meeting is rotated between the other PWSRCAC communities. Occasionally, special board meetings are also conducted as needed (usually by teleconference).
The board gives staff and committees overall direction about the work to be done in the coming year via the annual budget. The budget contains all programs and projects approved for that fiscal year. PWSRCAC operates on a July 1-June 30 fiscal year.
Board meetings are the time for staff and committees to bring forward their work in the form of contract proposals, position papers, funding requests, etc. Staff also has the opportunity to get policy and project direction from the board. Because many of the issues are complex and/or technical, directors receive extensive reading materials and are expected to review them before meetings.
Board meetings are open to the public, and an opportunity for the public to provide comments is provided at the beginning of each meeting.
