The CTSAB typically meets the second Thursday monthly from 9-11 AM. Reminders and agendas are emailed via the listserv and are posted to the State Agency Public Meeting Calendar on the Secretary of State website a week prior to the meeting and include meeting links. CTSAB meetings are open to anyone, teen through adult. Meeting minutes are posted to this page once they are approved, and include links to presentations.
