Healthy Acadia Community Advisory Council

Healthy Acadia’s Healthy Community Advisory Council helps put our mission into action by keeping our sights focused on high impact community health improvement in Hancock and Washington counties and beyond. The Advisory Council typically meets 5 times between September and May. Advisors represent a broad cross section of Hancock County communities, bring diverse skills and experience and are connected with a variety of community sectors and populations served.

Role and Responsibilities of Advisory Council Members

Healthy Acadia Advisors are nominated by Advisory Council members and selected by the Board of Directors to serve open-ended terms. No formal requirements exist, but it is expected that Advisors participate to the best of their ability, and with the broader public health interests of all Hancock County in mind. Advisors have the opportunity to expand their involvement with Healthy Acadia through ad-hoc teams and/or service on the Board of Directors who govern Healthy Acadia, a 501c3 charitable organization. The primary roles of Advisory Council Members are to:

  •   Advise Healthy Acadia staff & programs

  •   Assess community needs, assets and opportunities

  •   Develop strategic priorities for community health improvement

  •   Actively participate in community health improvement partnerships

  •   Advocate for prevention and policies which support public health improvement

  •   Network and collaborate to achieve shared goals for community improvement
