Who We Are

The Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities (OCDD) is made up of:

  • Self-advocates
  • Family members
  • Representatives of advocacy organizations
  • Community partners and state agencies that provide services and supports to people with developmental disabilities.

Our members are appointed by the Governor to serve up to two consecutive four-year terms.

Council members work together to determine the goals and objectives in our five-year plan, allocate funds to state plan activities and review our progress annually.
