Message from the CEO

ValValerie Sellers

Providers, I continue to be in awe of the passion and commitment my members demonstrate every day as they create a better life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  I feel compelled to share this observation and my experiences with just about anyone and everyone I meet.  I suspect that after a year of hearing this, my family, friends and colleagues want to yell “I get it!”  But in reality, few people do “get it” or understand the challenges providers such as yourselves face on a day-to-day basis with limited funds, bureaucratic challenges, and the never ending need to educate and change perceptions of those that don’t understand the unique needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

It is the role of NJACP to support you with all of these challenges to the greatest extent possible.  An  association is unique in that there can be great diversity among members; such is the case at NJACP.  And yet, the underlying foundation of any strong association is to meet the needs of all members regardless of size or budget.  In an association, members always come first. read more
