Resource: County Liaisons

September 2009

If your local commission is having problems with a project, needs information to help it move forward, or wants to know what other county local commissions are doing, look no further. The AOC has assigned each county in California a liaison with expertise in juvenile dependency law to provide assistance to new local blue ribbon commission collaborations. The liaisons can provide assistance in a variety of ways: sharing public education materials from other counties, facilitating networking among counties dealing with similar issues, training, connecting local commissions with experts in areas that interest them, connecting local commissions with appropriate resources, and many, many others.

Here is contact and county information for each liaison:
