The Appointment Advisory Committee (AAC) was established by the New Britain Borough Council for the purpose of adopting an orderly process to identify qualified, appropriate and capable individuals for various Commissions, Committees, offices and positions within the Borough.  The Committee then makes recommendations to Borough Council.  The Committee acts in an advisory capacity to Borough Council only and has no authority to appoint any person to any position with the Borough.

The AAC consists of the following:  the Chairpersons of each of the standing Boards, Commissions, and Committees of the Borough Council and one member of Borough Council.  If a member of Borough Council is both a Council member and a chair of one of the aforementioned Committees/Boards/Commissions he or she shall serve on the AAC in their capacity as Borough Council Member and the President of Council shall appoint another individual from the Committee/Board/Commission that is thereby unrepresented.
