The Minnesota Secretary of State is now is accepting applications for the Children’s Cabinet Advisory Council. Working in partnership with the Children’s Cabinet, members of the advisory council convene and align efforts around children and families. The advisory council is focused on promoting equity and addressing the opportunity gap from a whole family, whole system approach. Recommendations and feedback provided by the advisory council play a critical role in shaping the actions and policies of state agencies and the governor’s office, including the governor’s recent One MN budget proposals.
The time commitment is one two-hour virtual meeting every other month, typically Wednesdays from 4-6 p.m. MNAAP Board Member Andrea Singh, MD, FAAP, currently sits on the advisory council and wrote about her experiences in an article for Minnesota Pediatrician in December 2020.
