Newly Formed CFAC Regions Start Meeting This Month

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — July 09, 2019
Cardinal Innovations Healthcare’s Consumer and Family Advisory Committee (CFAC) is now operating under a new set of bylaws in four regions with one collective Steering Committee that began meeting this week.

The CFACs are self-governing groups that have a choice to receive administrative support from the Cardinal Innovations staff. CFAC members are adult volunteers age 18 or older who receive services for mental health, intellectual or developmental disabilities, or substance use disorder (MH/SUD/IDD) or are family members of those receiving services.

In May, Cardinal Innovations’ former Executive CFAC completed its adoption of new bylaws with addendums that are effective July 1. The group’s final meeting as an Executive CFAC occurred on June 27 with efforts made to finalize the Relational Agreement between Cardinal Innovations and the CFAC. This task was not completed and will be moved to the newly formed Steering Committee at its first meeting on August 1, 2019. Information about the newly formed CFAC Regions and details about their upcoming meetings are listed below:
