Social Advisory Council
The Social Advisory Council of the Municipality of Rafaela was created in 2002 as a space for the decentralization and control of state programs, acting as a space of intermediation and consensus between the Municipality and the community. It is represented by different government agencies and public officials as well as civil society organizations, private sector intermediary entities and educational entities. The Council operates regular monthly meetings to bring together the different institutional sectors of the city, which monitor the development of the Strategic Agenda.
