New Member Orientation

The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council (DD Council) consists of at least 30 members appointed by the governor. Members are people with developmental disabilities, parents and guardians of people with developmental disabilities, representatives from concerned state agencies, and nonprofit organizations and local agencies providing services to people with developmental disabilities.

After members are appointed to serve on DD Council, they receive an orientation to help them learn about their role and responsibilities. This is usually held either in person or online using the New Member Orientation Manual. You can download a PDF version of the guide or flip through the guide in the viewer window below.
