Meeting Schedule

Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Advisory Council meetings are open to the public. The Council welcomes visitors to join us as we serve the county and its residents. Meetings are from 7-9pm,on the second Thursday of each month. Subcommittee meetings are held immediately prior at 6pm. Inclement Weather Policy: The following applies to all County appointed Boards, Commissions and Committees (BCC). "For consistency, if Montgomery County Public Schools open late, morning BCC meetings are canceled; if schools close in the early afternoon, late afternoon and evening BCC meetings are canceled; or if schools are closed all day all BCC meetings for that day and evening are canceled."  This applies to full Commission meetings, subcommittees, and all other Commission activities.

For more information, please e-mail the AODAAC Liaison, Corey Brandel:
