The need for effective solutions for the community problems of our time is clear.

The last Session of the Congress enacted the Higher Education Act of 1965, Title I of said act providing grants to strengthen community services programs of colleges and universities so that such institutions can better assist in the solution of community problems.

I am confident that the citizens of Washington support the purpose of said act and request participation for the benefit of the communities of the State of Washington.

Now, therefore, I, Daniel J. Evans, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor of the State of Washington, do hereby proclaim the following Executive Order.

I. That the Department of Commerce and Economic Development is designated as the responsible agency to administer for the State of Washington, Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 pertaining to community services programs. To assist in the fulfillment of these responsibilities an Advisory Committee to the Department is hereby designated. This Committee shall consist of members appointed by the Governor and who shall serve at the pleasure of the Governor. The membership of the Committee shall reflect special qualifications with respect to solving community problems and members so appointed shall be broadly representative of the public and of the institutions of higher education which are competent to offer community service programs in the State of Washington.

II. Members of the Community Services Committee shall not receive compensation for services on this Committee from state funds, but may receive reimbursement for such expenses as may be incurred in the performance of their duties.

III. The Governor shall designate one of the members of the Community Services Committee as Chairman, arid the Committee may elect such other officers from its membership as it deems necessary. Minutes of the meetings shall be forwarded to the Governor.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Washington to be affixed at Olympia this
16th day of August A.D., Nineteen hundred and sixty-six.

Daniel J. Evans
Governor of Washington


Secretary of State
