NCE Professional Interest Groups

Professional Interest Groups will be the "think tanks" on a variety of different topics important to chapters of The Arc. They will identify issues, challenges, training needs, etc. that chapters have in common, develop tools and resources to address them, and then share their expertise with all NCE membership. NCE members possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Interest groups are intended to be the vehicle to harness that knowledge and expertise in an organized manner to benefit all leadership. These professional Interest Groups will form soon:

  • Board Governance
  • Education & Early Intervention
  • Development
  • Media & Community Relations
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Financial Management
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • Special Needs Trusts & Guardianship
  • Public Policy & Advocacy
  • Aging Caregivers & their loved ones with I/DD
