Are you a person with a disability who wants to get involved and make a difference? Do you have a family member with a disability or do you work to improve life for people with disabilities? The West Virginia Statewide Independent Living Council (the Council) is recruiting new members to fill vacancies for terms beginning July 1, 2018 and you should apply!
This federally mandated Council works closely with the Centers for Independent Living and monitors, reviews, and evaluates the implementation of the State Plan for Independent Living.
The Council seeks to maintain diversity of representation including disability, age, ethnicity, and life experiences. If you or someone you know would like to apply for membership on the Council, please return a completed application form (enclosed) by February 9, 2018.
Please feel free to duplicate this notice and the application form and share them with as many individuals as you wish. This information is also available on the SILC Web site at: www.wvsilc.org
Please review the responsibilities carefully and apply only if you are willing to fulfill them.
All applications will be reviewed and considered. Nominations selected by the Council will be submitted for appointment by Governor Jim Justice. This process can be lengthy and new members are not always appointed before the terms begin in July. We appreciate your patience. If you have questions or need further information or assistance, please feel free to contact me.
