Board of Directors

The purpose of the Board of Directors is to make policy decisions to determine the courses of action that our organization will take. Most of the board members are parents of people with autism and so have the best interests of the autism community in mind.

Each of these board members has a commitment to serve the autism community based on their positive experience with our organization. Board members are dedicated volunteers with deep roots in the community and frequently serve in advisory positions in schools and other autism related organizations.
