Purpose: To advise the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy board. The Conservancy was established by the California State Legislature in 1980. Since that time, it has helped to preserve over 75,000 acres of parkland in both wilderness and urban settings, and improved more than 114 public recreational facilities throughout Southern California. Additionally, it has given grants to nonprofit organizations for educational and interpretation programs that have served hundreds of thousands of children and other park visitors. The Conservancy consists of nine voting members, three ex officio members and six legislative members. This policy-making entity for the Conservancy is broadly representative of state, regional, and local interests.
Members: A twenty-six member Advisory Committee (SMMCAC) meets jointly with the Conservancy and offers citizens the opportunity for even greater participation.
There are 15 representatives from local governments, of which one appointment is made by the City of Thousand Oaks City Council.
The member serves a two-year term and must be a City resident. Conflict of Interest filing is also required (SMMCAC is Office of Record).
Meetings: Location varies.
