For over 30 years, two elected Members have represented their peers on L.A. GOAL’s Board of Directors.
Members’ Meetings are held every month except August and December. Members plan activities, manage their treasury, evaluate the programs offered at L.A. GOAL, and discuss news and events. Each month the elected Member’s Representatives bring their program recommendations to the Executive Director and the Board at L.A. GOAL Board meetings.
We teach Members to use their voice. This is reinforced by listening to, and acting on, what they have to say about the activities, programs, vocational training and employment opportunities they want to have at L.A. GOAL. Members are responsible for planning and implementing their events and activities.
Members participate in L.A. GOAL art exhibitions and boutiques to help promote the abilities of people with developmental disabilities. Members accompany L.A. GOAL staff at community events and speak at all public and corporate speaking engagements. Members conduct tours of the L.A. GOAL facilities for service providers, foundations, corporations, government representatives and the public as needed.
