Rulemaking Advisory Committees

Rulemaking Advisory Committees


Rulemaking Advisory Committees (RACs) are made up of community members who provide crucial guidance in the rule writing process. RAC members provide input and suggestions for rulemaking while considering equity and fiscal impacts. “Rules” are laws that participants in Oregon Early Learning Division (ELD) programs must apply and follow, such as requirements for Oregon Pre-Kindergarten program or licensed child care. Apply to join a RAC and help shape early learning programs in Oregon.

RACs meet between two and four times over the course of a month and members are provided compensation for participation. At this time, RACs are only held virtually. Listed on the right side of the page are RACs that are currently recruiting or meeting. If you see a RAC listed, but applications are closed, you can provide feedback by reaching out to the staff contact listed.    


For individuals with disabilities, individuals who speak a language other than English, or individuals who need technical assistance, ELD can provide assistance. See staff contact information.
