Budget and Advocacy Committee

The Budget and Advocacy Committee (BAC) is one of two standing committees of the Board on Agriculture's Policy Board of Directors, and is responsible for the preparation of an annual budget recommendation for those matters relating to agriculture and related areas that are of special concern to the member institutions and for coordinating the presentation of these recommendations to the BAA Policy Board of Directors in a timely fashion. The BAC also will work with the Council for Agricultural Research, Extension, and Teaching (CARET) and undertake the necessary and appropriate advocacy activities to effectively implement the budget recommendations adopted by the BAA Policy Board of Directors. The BAC communicates these budget recommendations to the APLU Council on Governmental Affairs, federal agencies  (including the U. S. Department of Agriculture and the Office of Management and Budget), U.S. House of Representatives and United States Senate, and other individuals and groups as deemed appropriate by the BAC.
