Vision. Advocacy. Collaboration. Focus groups and community boards are a valuable source of these characteristics and can help develop them in any organization. The Kettering Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Department (PRCA) created the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) to foster these traits through frequent, focused communication with a group of residents.
PAC is a focus group that engages members in a strategic and systematic review of our facilities, patrons services and programs. As an extension of the Kettering Park Board, PAC consists of 10 - 24 Kettering residents of all demographics. Those who serve on PAC commit to one year of service and are eligible for one additional year. Each PAC member receives a household credit that is to be used for the programs and facilities they are asked to audit.
- Program Advisory Committee (PAC) was established in 2010 as a volunteer committee under the governance of the Kettering Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Advisory Board (Park Board).
- PAC is recruited by the Park Board and members serve a 1-2 year term. The Park Board schedules regular meetings with PAC to review assignments and solicit feedback on any aspect of Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts and its programs. All five members of the Park Board will participate in leading PAC meetings through shared facilitation responsibilities.
