The New York State Independent Living Council (NYSILC) is seeking candidates interested in serving as volunteer council members beginning in 2023.
The primary responsibility of the council is to develop and monitor the State Plan for Independent Living, which is the blueprint for the programs and services that help New Yorkers with disabilities live independent, integrated lives in the community. NYSILC is seeking candidates to replace seven outgoing members. Council members are appointed to three-year terms. New members are assigned mentors to assist with onboarding and acclimation.
NYSILC aims to be representative of New York’s population and seeks diverse membership, including individuals with various disabilities, races/ethnicities, ages, and gender identification, geographically located throughout the state.
- Candidates must respond by June 30, 2022.
