Our Advisory Groups


The CBAA values the input of specialists in various fields; and has formed several key advisory groups to advise CBAA management on the views, needs and interests of stakeholders in these areas. Advisory group members are selected for their specialist expertise in these areas.

Members of each advisory group are subject to their specific advisory group’s Terms of Reference or Charter, as well as our Stakeholder and Member Consultation Framework.

CBAA Advisory Groups feed into the development and delivery of CBAA services or provide advice on the delivery of specific projects. They are a forum for specialist discussion and capture strategic input to inform CBAA management. Advisory groups are not decision-making forums. These groups are designed to support specific initiatives, projects, or services on a needs-basis. Each group is designed to best suit the circumstance and need.
