Disability Rights Montana is governed by a statewide, cross-disability, volunteer Board of Directors. Through personal and professional experiences, the directors represent people with mental illnesses, developmental disabilities, brain injuries, physical disabilities, and visual, and hearing impairments.
The Board reviews the advocacy and legal needs of people with disabilities. It establishes priorities, policies, and the budget for our organization. Each year the Board determines the level of resources allocated to individual, systems, and policy advocacy to protect the legal, human, and civil rights of Montanans with disabilities.
The Board of Directors meets quarterly. The regular full board meetings are generally on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and are normally held in Helena, although on occasion are held in different parts of the state.
We are currently taking applications for our Board of Directors, email Marissa@DisabilityRightsMT.org to request one.
