Our Structure

Formally established as a Town entity, the Partnership is guided by Mayoral Executive Order 17-01

Members of the Partnership are categorized into three (3) groups:

  1. General Members. General membership is open to any person interested in supporting the  Partnership. General members participate in meetings, offer opinions on  and insight into relevant issues, volunteer to participate in working  committees, offer special skills, and represent the Partnership at other meetings, events and conferences. 
  2. Lead Stakeholders. A Lead Stakeholder is defined as one (1) representative (unless otherwise noted) from each of the 15 community stakeholder groups identified  within the Executive Order. Appointed by the Mayor, Lead Stakeholders  attend all Partnership meetings possible, represent and communicate with other individuals belonging to their stakeholder group, and vote on  Partnership-related business. 
  3. Steering Committee. The  Steering Committee consists of six (6) Lead Stakeholders – elected by  the larger group of appointed Lead Stakeholders – and the Chair  (Braintree Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator). The Steering  Committee oversees the Partnership’s operating guidelines, plans  Partnership meetings, forms and dissolves working committees, votes on  Partnership-related business, assists with fundraising and the  development of an annual Partnership budget, and develops a strategic plan.
