The primary functions of the SDMC Advisory Board are as follows:
To serve as SDMC goodwill ambassadors
To offer advice and make non-binding recommendations to the SDMC Board of Directors
To recruit members who will make a support commitment with respect to matters within the areas of their experience and expertise.
