Members of the TRI Community Advisory Board (CAB) advise TRI on issues that are important to different stakeholders in the state, assist in prioritizing research initiatives and increase TRI’s visibility at the community level. The Community Engagement component recruits members, coordinates communication, organizes meetings, and manages their activities.
The CAB consists of a diverse group of community members who are familiar with social, mental and physical health issues for children and adults in Arkansas and have a history of working collaboratively. They are from local community organizations, predominantly nonprofit, with advocacy or service missions. The CAB members represent the racial, cultural and geographical diversity of Arkansas, serving as a voice for the communities they represent.
