What We Offer Chapters

The National Conference of Executives

The National Conference of Executives of The Arc (NCE) is a peer membership organization of over 300 professional leaders of local, state and national organizations serving individuals with cognitive or other developmental issues. Members share a common purpose: to improve their individual abilities to better serve their organizations and their constituents.

Standards for Excellence®

The Standards for Excellence® program promotes the highest standards of ethics and accountability in nonprofit governance, management, and operations, and facilitates adherence to those standards by all nonprofits. We are offering the Standards for Excellence® program to affiliated state and local chapters through collaboration with the national Standards for Excellence Institute. Educational packets and other supporting documents are available to chapters of The Arc, through our national replication partnership with this program.
