CMM Center Advisory Committee
Center Advisory Committee (CAC)
The Center Advisory Committee reviews overall progress in research, outreach & dissemination education & training, and administration of the Center. This assessment will be set in the context of each committee member’s area of expertise, as these members collectively will represent the core areas of the center. Key recommendations for future development of the Center will be decided upon by this group, and reports from their meetings will be shared with the Center’s Executive Committee.
The CAC has responsibilities, as directed by the NCI:
- Review the strategies and mechanisms to develop pilot projects, as needed and approved by the CAC, to bring in expertise outside of the individual PS-OC, as a result of outreach interactions, that will enhance specific efforts of the PS-OC in the overarching PS-OCs framework .
- Review the procedures and process for establishing Pilot Projects.
- Review proposals and recommend funding support for Outreach Pilot Projects and Pilot Projects.
The Committee is expected to meet at least two times each year. At the annual NCI site visit the CAC is required to assemble and meet with the site visitors. Other meetings will be scheduled as needed in person or by phone/video conference.
