To help in the Steering Committee’s work to draft a new plan of service, a survey has been developed to gauge the relative value and quality of 4CLS services. The input generated by this survey will be very helpful in the creation of the next plan.
The survey, and a helpful glossary of terms can be found on the Steering Committee page.
Also, you can use the direct links below. Please complete the survey by June 1. Directors, staff, volunteers, and board members are all invited to complete the survey.
The minutes from the January 16 meeting of the 4CLS Board have been posted to the 4CLS Board Minutes page.
