A Word

From Our Director

“My first couple of months as the Executive Director here at the New River Valley Disability Resource Center have been intense! I’m becoming familiar with policies, procedures, standards and regulations that govern Centers for Independent Living and I’m being given an opportunity to influence our community from a systems perspective rather than the perspective of a direct services professional.”

– Barbara Clark

Board of Directors

Like all Centers for Independent Living, the Board of Directors of the NRV DRC consists of 51% or more people who identify as disabled. The Board meets with the Executive Director for a monthly business meeting and serves to advise and guide the running of the NRV DRC.

All members of the Board are volunteers. Our Board currently meets every 3rd Thursday of the month. If you would like to participate on the Board or in some other volunteer capacity, please contact us at bclark@nrvdrc.org.
