Membership: Chicano/Latino Affairs Council is open to all Cabrillo College faculty, staff, and students who are interested in Latino/a affairs on campus and in the greater community.

Meetings: Meetings are held during each Flex week, then at least once per fall and spring semesters.

Leadership: A convener and co-convener may be selected or a leadership committee may be set up.
