Community Advisory Council (CAC)


One of IOLERO’s primary missions is to engage the community in order to make sure you are aware of our work and to be informed about your viewpoints, concerns and experiences. Our Community Advisory Council (CAC), composed of volunteers from across Sonoma County, helps IOLERO carry out this mission.

Our goal is to be present at a minimum of one community event per month. For example, we host a booth at the Cinco de Mayo celebration in Roseland and we give presentations at smaller community events such as the Senior Health Fair in Cloverdale. Additionally, we host community outreach meetings at different locations throughout the county.

If you would like IOLERO to be present at your event, or to learn more about our community outreach efforts, please contact us by phone at (707) 565-1534 or via email at If you would like IOLERO to be present at your event or to learn more about our community outreach efforts, please contact us by phone or email.
