Council members are like a board of directors. They set goals for the Council and help guide the work we do. Our goals are based on what Council members think are the most important issues needing our attention. Council members bring different experiences, skills, and ideas that help us make progress on our goals.
Council members include:
- People with developmental disabilities
- Family members of people with developmental disabilities
- State agencies
- Community organizations
- Disability Rights Maryland
- Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities.
Most of the Council’s members are people with developmental disabilities and family members.
