Have you thought about, or do you have, self-advocates on your board of directors? At some point, we've all struggled with developing new, innovative, and meaningful ways to involve adult members in our associations. We know the importance of these opportunities, but what are the challenges and how do we address them so that the experiences are beneficial to all?
DSAIA will host a topical call for executive directors, board presidents, and governance committee chairs to share some of the strengths, challenges, and basic principles of having self-advocates as members of the board of directors. Join us to ask questions and get honest answers, and hear about other organizations' experiences over the years.
I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
