Councils and Boards

The Planning Council is comprised of over 30 members who represent local and State HIV service providers, as well as community leaders and advocates, and People Living with the HIV or AIDS (PLWHA).We are required by HRSA to have 33% PLWH as Council members; the Hudson Council is comprised of more than 50% PLWHA. A monthly Planning Council meeting is normally held on the first Wednesday evening of every month, at 5:30 p.m., and is open to the public. However, due to the Public Health Emergency, the Planning Council meetings are currently being held virtually every first Wednesday afternoon of every month, at 1:00 p.m. until further notice.  Additional information about the Planning Council may be obtained by calling the Staff Manager, Chad Balodis, at (201) 324-6222 x3212 or by sending an email to: HudsonPlanningCouncil@gmail.com.
