The Council Wants YOU!!
If you are a parent of a child with a developmental disability, the Council is seeking applications for the Governor appointed board.
Why Be A Council Member?
Council members are adults with developmental disabilities, parents of children with developmental disabilities, and representatives from various organizations and state agencies that fill specified Council positions. Members bring state and national focus to issues of concern to persons with developmental disabilities and their families. As a member, after learning about these issues, you will have the opportunity to:
- educate the public
- inform policymakers
- improve systems
- support self-advocacy
- build community capacity
What Responsibilities Do Members Have?
Council members serve for a 3-year term and attend 2-day meetings every 3 months. Meetings are held on Thursdays and Fridays in Boise, Idaho. Travel, lodging, and meal expenses for meetings are paid by the Council. Members are also expected to receive and respond to email communication concerning Council business, participate in occasional interim tele/video-conference meetings to discuss and decide critical issues, and may be asked to participate in a variety of other Council activities locally.
In advance of each quarterly meeting, members receive information packets they are required to read. The Council expects members to be aware of issues in their local communities and bring ideas, issues, and opportunities to the Council's attention.
(Packets and other materials are provided in alternative formats and other accommodations made when requested.)
