For Your Ears Only (Board Members Wanted for Topical Call)

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.)
