A community advisory panel is a group of individuals who represent the fabric of their community and who have
made a commitment to meet with the management of a local plant on a regular basis to discuss issues of mutual interest.
Community advisory panels are a way to improve dialogue between plants and local communities and build industry
credibility and community trust.
Community advisory panels allow members of the community to share their concerns and ask their questions of
plant management. Panels include key audiences within the community such as civic leaders, business leaders, homemakers, retirees,
hourly workers, emergency responders, clergy, educators, environmental groups and health care providers.
