Clear Direction


Members of the External Advisory Committee meet annually in Milwaukee with the members of the Internal Advisory Committee to review and consider the general direction being taken by the Center. Based upon their experiences, they make recommendations to improve the Center.


These members are experts in their fields and have done a significant amount of peer development and research. The time they spend examining the inner workings of the Center are appreciated, as are their thoughtful recommendations.
