Become a Board Member of ARC Rutland Area

Is it important to you that persons with developmental disabilities be regarded as valued citizens with the same entitlements as non-disabled individuals? Is it also important to you that this group of individuals be provided with opportunities for full participation within the community? If you truly believe in these human rights and are willing to advocate for this population, a Board of Director’s position at ARC Rutland Area is for you!

ARC Rutland Area believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability and that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society. ARC Rutland Area works diligently to assure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society. The Board of Directors, comprised of local professionals and advocates , works collaboratively with the Executive Director, in guiding ARC Rutland Area toward achieving the stated goals in their action plans.

This volunteer position is rewarding, enriching, and visionary. You will have the wonderful opportunity of impacting hundreds of lives in many positive ways through advocacy and engagement.
