The R.O.C.K. Mat-Su Steering Committee is comprised of individuals who hold expertise in sectors which influence the lives and children and families in the Mat-Su Borough. The Steering Committee decides the priorities and makes strategic decisions on behalf of the initiative’s membership.

Committee seats are held by individuals, and the opinions they express do not necessarily reflect the organizations which they represent. Steering Committee members meet every other month, and serve three-year terms.
