You're Doing Amazing Things - Be Recognized For Them!
Affiliates in Excellence is in its 3rd year of recognizing the incredible accomplishments of DSAIA members across the nation. Applications are now open through January 31, 2016. With eleven entry categories and three budget categories, DSAIA has made sure that we are recognizing what our members are doing - no matter where they are located or how large they are. To view last year's winners, click here.
Is your organization doing amazing things? Stand up and be recognized! Complete this short form to submit your application today! Learn all the details on our Affiliates in Excellence page. Awards will be presented at the annual leadership conference in Charlotte in March 2016, sponsored by MetLife Center for Special Needs Planning.
As a board member, you have a different role (and perspective) as a leader in your organization. DSAIA's latest topical call will focus only on the board member and the issues that they face as the governing body (and sometimes worker bees) of their Down syndrome association.
When registering for the call, you'll be asked to submit questions to be considered for conversation. These questions will be introduced anonymously but can be commented on in the call by the questioner if they wish.
The call will be moderated by Sterling Lynk, DSAIA Board President. Registrants of this topical call will be screened for approval. (No staff will be allowed on this call.)
