In accordance with Federal Statute the Governor of Connecticut appoints each member of our twenty-three member statewide council. The Council is charged by the United States Congress to advance the principles and philosophy of Independent Living for all citizens with disabilities. Federal Statute requires that at least fifty-one percent of the Council’s membership be comprised of persons with a disability. The Council, which is funded by both state and federal resources, collaborates with five Centers for Independent Living, located in the communities of Hartford, Norwich, Stratford, and Naugatuck, West Haven.

SILC Board meeting is our annual meeting on Wed., October 1, 2014, 12-2 pm. at New Park Office and Conference Center, Hartford Room.

Our guest speaker is Terry Edelstein, Governor Malloy’s Nonprofit Liaison.  We’re excited to have Terry join us as she will speak on issues related to non-profit capacity-building and sustainability.  Specifically, she’ll: Provide an update on Governor’s cabinet on nonprofit health and human services and relevant state nonprofit grant programs;
Discuss the importance of supporting and developing our nonprofit workforce; staying current; and educating ourselves on the ever changing nonprofit sector;
Discuss the importance of looking at creative,  innovative and new approaches to funding and program implementation.
Her discussion is a perfect fit with the 2013 five-part nonprofit series and the current goals of the 2014-2016 State Plan for Independent Living.  Please contact Debbie Melaragno if you are interested in attending.
