Board and Governance

Guidance in motion
Meet The Arc Tennessee’s Board

The Arc Tennessee is not just an organization supporting persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities(IDD) and their families, but also an organization governed by persons with IDD and their families. Every year the board development committee is tasked with ensuring persons with IDD are included on the organization’s board of directors, as well as family members of persons with IDD. The Executive Committee leads our 26-member board in which diversity, inclusion and regional representation are top priorities.
