Board & Councils

Our Board of Directors and Advisory Councils reflect diverse groups of people from across New York State. DRNY actively recruits and elects members who are, or have been, a person with a disability or family members of a person with a disability, and in these efforts endeavors to reflect the diversity of disability in our society.

Advisory Councils

The primary role of our advisory councils is to make recommendations regarding DRNY's priorities and policies as well as evaluate the effectiveness of our advocacy. Both councils devote significant time to discussing the issues and problems facing people with disabilities.

PAIMI ADVISORY COUNCIL focuses on issues impacting individuals with mental illness. Travel expenses and disability-related accommodations are provided by DRNY.

PADD ADVISORY COUNCIL focuses on issues impacting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Travel expenses and disability-related accommodations are provided by DRNY.
