As a provision of the Developmental Disabilities Reform Act (K.A.R. 30-64-31), CDDOs are required to develop a Council of Community Members made up of volunteers that include individuals with a developmental disability, guardians, families, community provider representatives and CDDO representatives. This committee makes suggestions and recommendations concerning any services issue including the following:

• The development and implementation of the dispute resolution process.
• The development, implementation and progress reporting as to local capacity building plans.
