MCD advises the Governor, Legislature, state agencies and the public on disability issues. Issues the Council works on are accessibility/ADA, rights, employment and transportation policy, emergency preparedness and Olmsted.
If you are someone who has a disability, who works with people with disabilities, or who is a family member of a person with a disability, Council membership may be for you!
- Meetings are held four times per year (meeting locations may vary).
- Council members are appointed by the Governor.
- Members are reimbursed for mileage, meals and given a per diem stipend for work.
