CIDA has been supported by a group of people who have big ideas, and have the capacity to make those ideas happen to help the community. CIDA has grown strong because of these leaders’ effective approaches in decision making and outreach. CIDA currently is supported by nine Board of Directors. As a federally recognized Parent Center, more than 50% of board memberships are occupied by parents of children with disabilities. Many CIDA Board members were recruited among families of children and young adults with disabilities. This is to reflect the Board’s belief to maintain the integrity and focus of our program on CIDA’s original mission. The list of Other Board Directors is provided below.
