The Board of Supervisors receives valuable input from numerous volunteer citizen advisory boards or commissions on a range of issues. Some members are appointed by individual supervisors to represent their district. Others are at-large.
This includes the Municipal Advisory Councils (MACS) which are appointed by the supervisors to provide input on unincorporated communities. In Supervisor Gioia's District this includes:
The El Sobrante Municipal Advisory Council (ESMAC)
The North Richmond Municipal Advisory Council (NRMAC)
