Board of directors

overview

The NCSRC Board of Directors (BOD) is designed to represent each of the “historic” Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) Regions, when possible. A simple majority of members are those individuals who are appointed to their respective State or Territory SRC, while some Coalition members are comprised of SRC staff who work specifically for their Council or their VR agency.

The Board was created to assure organizational development, provide direction, education, training and a continual information stream to Councils & Commissions. The NCSRC BOD plans the spring and fall NCSRC conferences, oversees the NCSRC website, assists with mentoring SRCs as needed, makes reports two (2) times a year during the spring and fall business meetings of the Council of State Administrators for Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR) Conferences to the membership, conducts national telephone training conferences quarterly, maintains financial records for the membership and serves as a link to all SRCs, CSAVR & RSA.

NATIONAL SRC CONFERENCE CALLS

The BOD will conduct national calls twice per year beginning at 2:30 p.m. EST. and meet twice per year in person. Topics will vary based on the needs of the members and their requests. The calls are for all SRC members and are toll free. Council chairs and liaisons will be sent the date, time and topic to be forwarded to their State or Territory’s SRC. The information for the calls is also posted on the website.
