Page 2 Facilities and Capital Committee The Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC) serves as an advisory committee to the Facilities Officer and Executive Director regarding physical property and facilities. In an advisory capacity, the FAC will assist in the long-range needs analysis (budgetary and other) for property and facilities, the prioritization of those needs, and the gathering of data as appropriate and necessary in the creation of the Master Plan for property and facilities to meet the needs of the National Ability Center s program and mission. The committee will periodically assist in the updating and revising of the Master Plan. Annually, the committee will assist the Facilities and Capital Manager in identifying, evaluating, prioritizing and budgeting maintenance and repair operations for the National Ability Center property and facilities prior to submission of the budget to the Board. The limits of the FAC are to review and recommend to the Board of Directors or other appropriate administrator. The Facilities Advisory Committee is made up of a variety of National Ability stakeholders

3 including donors, family members, participants, volunteers, board members, staff and community partners. An excellent facilities committee is not one that is unified in its perspective and insights. It is the variety of these perspectives and insights that gives breadth and depth to the committee's work. An excellent committee will, however, have a reconciling attitude that enables them to move forward together in the process. The committee will strive for community of spirit, not unity of perspective. A Facilities Advisory Committee should have five to seven members with the following qualifications: Posses a thorough understanding of the strategic mission of the National Ability Center. If the committee is unable to understand and articulate the mission strategy, it is unlikely the resulting facilities will be exactly what the National Ability Center needs. Be an independent team player. Have the ability to be an independent thinker and able to work as a team so that you support the group s decision when you leave the meeting. Possess planning skills. Skills in analysis and decision-making are necessary to move forward in a positive direction. Creativity is often necessary to find the right solutions. Have a basic knowledge of the building industry. Knowledge of the building industry is helpful but lack of such knowledge is not disqualifying. At least a few members of the committee must have substantial construction experience. Ensure the proper operation of all aspects of the facilities to create an optimal, safe and cost effective environment for the employees and participants to function. o Health & Safety o Periodic Statutory Testing and o Fire Safety Inspection o Security o Operational o Maintenance Systems o Business Continuity Planning Provide support to the annual and strategic plans.
