ILSNC is requesting assistance in locating a consumer (must be receiving Medi-Cal and live in Shasta, Siskiyou, Lassen or Modoc counties) to be a consumer representative on the Consumer Advisory Committee with Partnership HealthPlan. Partnership’s offices are near the airport in South Redding. The meetings occur every other month. This is a real need. Professional advocates are invited to attend, but the real power lies in the hands of the consumer. Please find a worthy representative. They need not be a consumer of ours, but must be on Medi-Cal from one of the 4 counties. Information can be obtained by contacting Kelley Sewell, Northern Region Member Services and Provider Relations Director.
She can be reached at:

The Disability Organizing Network (www.disabilityorganizing.net) is embarking on a quest to populate local Voting Advisory Committees throughout the state. We cannot do much outside of our major population centers, but since Shasta & Tehama counties are combining their efforts, can we locate 1 or 2 disabled folks to serve on this committee? This activity is coordinated by the Secretary of State’s office through each county and is active every other year. 2014 is an election year, so this is the year to ensure that various disabilities are represented on local boards. For information, please contact Cathy Darling Allen, Shasta County Clerk @ 225-5166.
