Appointed members serve voluntarily as individuals on the Council, rather than representatives of their affiliated organizations, for up to two three-year terms. The Mayor appoints members based on their knowledge and expertise in the regional food system. Appointed members often serve on FPAC subcommittees or working groups, contributing on average ten hours per month in volunteer time towards FPAC meetings, projects, testimony, and policy recommendations.
Consideration for appointment to FPAC is based on a nomination form that individuals complete on behalf of others or themselves. The Governance and Membership subcommittee reviews nominations periodically and makes selections to advance nominations based on the Council’s self-identified gaps in knowledge or expertise. Appointed members are required to attend general meetings to ensure FPAC meets quorum, and have the power to vote on Council action items.
