American Association of People with Disabilities Seeking New Leadership

June 2015 - The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is currently seeking a new President and CEO to advance attainment of the organization’s vision, “to develop the inherent power of people with disabilities to be both a political and economic force.” While they are looking for a new leader, the AAPD Board of Directors is temporarily relying on long-time disability rights advocate and former Executive Vice President, Helena Berger, as the Acting President and CEO of the organization. As the AAPD approaches their 25th anniversary, they are seeking feedback to take the organization to the next level. You can email them at communications@aapd.com with your questions or comments. As well as improving the organization, the AAPD is hosting A Celebration of Pride, Power, and Promise on July 27th in Washington, D.C. with their partner, the National Disability Leadership Alliance (NDLA). Not only do they want you to come out and celebrate with them, they also have open positions in their organization so if anyone wants more information, they can visit http://www.aapd.com/jobs on how to apply.
