District Accountability Committee (DAC) - 1st Meeting 9/28/2021



I am looking for a representative for Central who would be willing to serve on the District Accountability Committee. You would represent Central and make recommendations to District Office level personnel regarding spending, protocols, etc.

The first meeting for the year is scheduled for Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at 5:15 pm, and will be held in person at Greeley Central with an option to join virtually if needed (via Zoom). If you are attending in person, individually wrapped snacks and bottled drinks will be provided.

Below are the remaining meeting dates to mark your calendars:

  • October 19, 2021
  • November 16, 2021
  • January 18, 2022
  • March 22, 2022
  • April 19, 2022

If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please let me know. The first meeting is short notice; if you can't make it, that does not discount you from serving. These are the responsibilities:
