Council Members

As required in the DD Act (PL 106-402), not less than 60% of our members represent people experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), parents of people with IDD, or immediate family members. Other required members include our AIDD Network Partners, representatives of state agencies that administer federal funds related to people with disabilities, and community partners concerned with services for people with IDD.

Council members complete an application and interview process. If approved, members are appointed by the Governor to serve up to two four-year terms. We periodically recruit new members when membership terms expire. If you are interested in applying for Council membership, please contact us at
