The Institute on Community Integration’s Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a diverse group of community leaders in disability that advises on broad programmatic decisions, evaluates the impact of the Institute’s work within the state and region, and helps guide the Institute's involvement in community-engagement activities. CAC members bring policy and advocacy skills, provider and practitioner perspectives, and lived experiences. Over half of the CAC members are persons with IDD or family members. As a group and individually, CAC members offer advice and counsel on broader cross-system and related priorities. They also provide feedback on ICI projects and products and make sure that we are on target to meet our goals. CAC members meet quarterly.

Members of the Institute's Community Advisory Council include the following individuals, as of February 2023 –
