2/11/2016 - I was recently made aware that additional requirements are necessary to complete my college degree. As you might imagine, it was quite a surprise to learn this information after nearly 40 years have passed. I firmly believed I had graduated, completing my coursework according to my advisor’s recommendations, and then going overseas to continue my education confident that my bachelor’s degree was complete. Obviously this is somewhat embarrassing, but I am glad to have obtained this information and will update the record accordingly. I greatly value my time and education I received at MIIS, and I’ve taken immediate steps to work with MIIS to figure out what happened. Now I’ll have to squeeze in time for 8 more credits along with my busy Supervisor’s schedule!

MENTAL HEALTH COMMISSION: The Commission reviews and evaluates the community’s mental health needs, services, facilities, and special programs. We are currently recruiting applicants for one seat on the commission and one youth (under 18 years of age) non-voting seat on the commission. The Commission meets once per month in the evening.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COORDINATING COUNCIL: The Council improves coordination between agencies, departments and the courts for the benefit of victims of domestic violence and abuse, and promotes effective prevention, intervention and treatment techniques based on research and data collection. The Council also works to improve the response to domestic violence and abuse so as to reduce the incidents in the County. The Council may, if necessary, establish procedures, conduct reviews, develop policies, and take all other actions necessary to further the board objectives of responsiveness to domestic violence and related issues, subject to approval of the Board of Supervisors. Meetings are held for once per month in Salinas.


COMMUNITY ACTION COMMISSION: The CAC is tasked with assessing the needs of the low-income residents in Monterey County and developing, maintaining, and evaluating community services that empower low-income persons, improve their quality of life, and assist them to achieve self-sufficiency. Meetings are held the third Monday of each month from 4:00-6:00 p.m., in Salinas.
