Board of Directors

 

AUCD is governed by an elected Board of Directors that includes professionals, individuals with disabilities, and family members. The Board of Directors has established a number of committees and councils made up of experts in the field to help the Board address emerging trends and issues, and to facilitate communication across and beyond the AUCD network.
