CONSUMER ADVISORY BOARD
SEEKING APPLICATIONS FOR NEW MEMEBERSHIP
The Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) is a forum where Consumers, providers, caregivers, family members and PCAs/workers come together to share how they are experiencing the services provided by Tempus Unlimited, Inc.
Tempus’ Mission is to support those with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the least restrictive environment. One way to ensure that we are providing services that are relevant and accessible is by providing a forum for a self- selected group of advocates that are representative of the community we serve. The Consumer Advisory Board Lead’s role is to listen to your thoughts, concerns, and recommendations and to share that information with the Senior Leadership of Tempus Unlimited.
The CAB members will work collaboratively on a range of strategies, policies and programmatic issues affecting the lives of those in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, either enrolled in, or supporting someone enrolled in, TEMPUS Fiscal Intermediary services.
Your Voice Counts
The Consumer Advisory Board gives you the chance to tell us about your experience and needs, and raise questions or concerns about topics that may affect how well you experience our services. It is also a nice way to meet other Consumer and PCAs/workers in the Community.
The Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) is accepting applications for membership. In accordance with its guidelines “memberships will be derived from representatives from the following groups: Consumers, providers, caregivers, family members and PCAs/workers.
