To keep abreast of challenges, changes and current activity for individuals with developmental and other disabilities, I encourage you to be a member of The Arc of the Quad Cities Area. When you become a member of The Arc, you also become a member of The Arc of Illinois, and The Arc of the United States. You gain access to essential information about programs and services for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities; and you will receive email alerts about legislative and funding issues that affect those we serve. As a member of The Arc of Illinois you are eligible to apply for a stipend for convention and training.
Membership is open to everyone interested in strengthening programs for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Membership runs from April 1st through March 31st of the following year, so this year’s membership is activated as of April 1, 2017. The Arc offers an opportunity to become a “Sustaining Member” for those who wish to commit to ongoing monthly support of The Arc of the Quad Cities Area. I strongly encourage you to become a sustaining member of The Arc.
