IHSS Public Authority Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee provides ongoing advice and recommendations regarding IHSS and the Public Authority to the Solano County Board of Supervisors. Meeting dates and times are as follows:
2016 Meeting Schedule
AB 1682 requires each county in California to establish an Advisory Committee to provide recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, IHSS, and the PA. For the first time, the Advisory Committees/Boards have given a voice to consumers and providers to participate in decisions that directly affect their lives and in how services are provided to consumers. We are here to make recommendations.
Always Looking Up! - Comments from IHSS Advisory Committee Chair
It's hard to believe it's already the Spring of 2016! We have been busy once again planning our Spring Outreach Conference and the date is set for Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the North Bay Health Care Conference Center located at 4500 Business Center Drive in Fairfield, CA. We used this venue last year and are satisfied that this year's conference will be a success. We'll have a continental breakfast, great speakers, a hot lunch, some raffle drawings and some wonderful giveaways. Postcard invitations are in the process of being sent out to all IHSS Consumers and Providers. Here is a link to the flyer:

We appointed two new members to our IHSS Advisory Committee in 2015 and we still have room for two more members. If you are interested in joining us, Membership Applications are available through the Public Authority at (707)784-8200.
Lastly, I would like to invite all IHSS consumers, providers and family members to attend our Advisory Committee meetings. Please check this site for our meeting schedule. We are YOUR voice so we would love to hear from you! I am happy to represent you as the Chairwoman of the Advisory Committee. Remember to “Always Look Up” & “Keep Moving Forward” because that’s what I do!
Keep smiling and God Bless!
