The SAC6 was created in May, 1992 by consumers at an area self-advocacy meeting and serves Area 6 — Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne counties. Two representatives from each self advocacy chapter in Area 6 can serve on the SAC6 board. Area 6 has representatives on the Valley Mountain Regional Center Board, the State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) North Valley Hills Office, the Statewide Self-Advocacy Network (SSAN), and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC).
The representative of the Department of Developmental Services Consumer Advisory Committee is also a member of the SAC6. The elected leadership for SAC6 includes:
Lisa Utsey, Chairperson and Treasurer
Catrina Castro, Vice Chairperson
Jessica Quesada, Secretary
Crystal Enyeart, Sgt at Arms and VMRC Representative to the Board of Directors and Consumer Services Committee
Only members of self-advocacy groups are members of SAC6 board. SAC6 also publishes a newsletter called The Chatter: Spring 2019.
