Our Community Advisory Council

  • A member majority who are individuals with developmental disabilities and family members
  • A representative of the State Protection and Advocacy System and a representative of the State Council on Developmental Disabilities
  • A representative of a self-advocacy organization
  • Representatives of other organizations, including the parent training and information centers, Assistive Technology, relevant state agencies, and other community groups concerned with the welfare of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families
  • A diverse population reflective of the state
