Our District Coordinating Council meets on a quarterly basis. Our leadership team or Planning Committee consists of two co-chairs, one representing Hancock County and one representing Washington County; along with representatives from a sampling of our multisector council, including health care, Healthy Maine Partnerships, health/social services, county and municipal government, education, and early childhood to name a few.

Quarterly DCC meetings for 2012: March 23, June 29, September 28 and November 30. All are currently planned for 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and will be held at the Maine Sea Coast Mission campus in Cherryfield.
