NYSILC SEEKING CANDIDATES TO SERVE AS COUNCIL MEMBERS FOR 2016
The New York State Independent Living Council, Inc. (NYSILC) is an independent, non-profit, state council that is required by federal law. Our primary responsibility is to work with state partners to develop, monitor and evaluate New York’s three-year Statewide Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The Council’s mission is to promote the independent living philosophy through the network of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and statewide partnerships. We also strongly support research, education, employment, community organization, advocacy, and systems reform around disability issues.
NYSILC is in the process of seeking candidates to serve as potential volunteer council members appointed by the New York State Regents to three-year terms. The council is looking to fill a number of vacancies and terms that will expire at the end of the year. The council seeks membership with priority given to qualified individuals with various disabilities, further enhanced by diverse cultures, ages, and gender, geographically distributed across the State. Particular categories include parent/guardian, organizations serving individuals with disabilities, other appropriate individuals, and CIL representatives - with one having a working relationship with a Native American reservation.
Interested candidates should complete the application form in its entirety. This includes a copy of your resume plus two references with contact information. This information should be sent electronically to ensure equal access during the review process to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of business on Friday, June 19, 2015.
The recommendation and appointment process will proceed over the next few months. If you have any questions about the application, process, or duties of council members, contact the NYSILC office at (518) 427-1060, or email@example.com. Thank you for your interest in the council.
