On behalf of the members of the DSOSN Board of Directors (BOD), thank you so much for your interest in serving on the Board. In our community, there are an array of remarkable organizations engaged in the important work of serving and advocating for persons with Down syndrome and other intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD). We are humbled knowing that you are interested in serving on our Board.

The following application offers us an opportunity to know more about you, your skills, attributes and what you would bring to our Board. It also gives you a sense of what matters to us in a board candidate. The goal of our process is to determine if we are a good fit for each other – your level of commitment and ability to deliver on our expectations so that we are confident that you can help us to increase the scope and impact of our work. On the other side, we want to know what motivates you and how you think about our organization so that we can help to create an excellent Board experience for you.

Thank you again for your interest in our work and for taking the time to complete this application with thought and care. We look forward to reviewing it with that same level of thought and care, and to continuing the conversations, if you are elected/appointed as a Board member.
