The Institute on Disability's Consumer Advisory Council

Behind the scenes, working on issues they feel are important to the IOD, is a not often heard of group called the IOD Consumer Advisory Council (CAC). Comprised of persons who have a disability and family members, this group meets 4 times per year and works on advising the IOD on projects, giving their input on anything from grant submissions to the IOD’s Strategic Plan. Their input is greatly valued by the IOD. Says Linda Bimbo, Acting Director of the IOD, "Our focus is to advance policy and practice for and with people with disabilities, their families and communities.
