Consumer Advisory Council
Purpose of the Council
The purpose of the Consumer Advisory Council is to represent the public in advising the Commissioners on matters relating to the protection of consumer interests which are under the jurisdiction of the Commission, or which, in the opinion of the Council, should be brought under the jurisdiction of the Commission. The Council acts as a source of information and advice for the Commissioners. Interactions between the Council and the Commissioners occur through periodic meetings with the Commissioners and in writing via minutes of meetings and formal motions.
Council meetings are generally held on the fourth Tuesday of every other month in the Keystone Building Meeting Center at the Commonwealth Keystone Building in Harrisburg starting at 10:00 a.m. and are open to the public. Meetings that conflict with holiday travel or other schedule conflicts are usually held on the second or third Tuesday of the month, depending on the availability of Council members.
