FCLCA’s Policy Review Process
The governing body of the Friends Committee on Legislation of California is the General Committee. This body sets the legislative priorities, considers and approves any changes to the policy statements.
FCLCA also has a Board of Directors which has direct oversight responsibility for FCLCA.
The Board of Directors appoints a Policy Committee to
- propose legislative policies and priorities for approval by the General Committee,
- research initiatives and referenda placed before the electorate and recommend positions for approval by the Board of Directors
- review and update specific policy statements
