Advisory Board

The Nevada Medical Center advisory board consists of a diverse mix of community leaders and professionals who provide non-binding, strategic advice to NMC staff members. The advisory board does not have formal authority to govern the organization. Their primary purpose is to make recommendations and provide key information and materials to NMC’s board of directors.

The advisory board may evaluate program performance, serve as a community advocate for NMC, gather input from relevant constituencies, provide community feedback and technical expertise, and assist staff in prioritizing activities. Members of the advisory board are committed to a one-year term, but may serve up to five years.
