On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is our pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting of the The Arc of Northern Virginia.
The Annual Meeting is our opportunity to come together and recognize great achievements, dedicated volunteers and celebrate another year’s accomplishments. Come celebrate the accomplishments of the last year alongside other members and friends of The Arc of Northern Virginia. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what we do, who we are, and why we care about serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
State of The Arc of Northern Virginia
The Board President’s address will focus on our work over the past year, recent recognition and awards, our impact for families, and future plans that will enable us to further serve the community.
One of the highlights of the year is the presentation these two prestigious awards:
◊ The 2018 Jessica Burmester Volunteer Award
◊ The 2018 Rusty Garth “You Are the Change” Advocacy Award
During this portion of the evening, as members of The Arc of Northern Virginia, you will have the opportunity to:
◊ Elect the members of the Board of Directors and Officers
◊ Vote on proposed changes to the Bylaws of The Arc of Northern Virginia
Special Guests: Panel of Virginia State Legislators
This year’s annual meeting breaks from the tradition of just one guest speaker. Instead, we’re proud to present a panel of Virginia Legislators elected to serve the constituents of Northern Virginia.
The legislators on the panel will share information about their past work advocating for developmental disability support and services, a preview of their plans for the 2019 session, and take questions from the audience submitted in advance.
Confirmed guest panelists for the meeting include Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn, Delegate Patrick Hope, Delegate Marcus Simon, and State Senator Barbara Favola.
