Members of the Trust Advisory Committee (TAC) will give advice and make recommendations about the operation of the Oak Park Trust Project, and will guide decisions about funds it raises and how they are used. The TAC will be made up of community members, business leaders and staff from the City and the Foundation/Center — all working toward a common goal of using these new resources to provide the most benefit to the Oak Park Community. Applications for the TAC were due on Dec. 3, 2018.
TAC members will have many different skills, a commitment to working together and a desire to get things done. They will be residents of different ages, backgrounds and histories who represent the diversity of Oak Park. Inclusivity, equity, integrity, respect and compassion are important values for each member to embrace.
TAC members will be selected in December and meetings will begin in January 2019. They will serve two-year terms and meet monthly for 1.5 hours with dinner provided. Terms will begin January 1 of each year with the first term starting January 1, 2019. No member will serve for more than two consecutive terms. TAC members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time or service.
