Montana Youth in Transition Conference

Register now for the Montana Youth in Transition Conference, to be held November 5-7, 2014, in Missoula!

The Rural Institute Consumer Advisory Council is recruiting a representative from the Montana Developmental Disabilities Program, as well as individuals with developmental disabilities from the north and south central areas of the state to serve on the council.

The advisory council helps various Rural Institute projects determine necessary and appropriate activities, establish priorities, develop work plans, craft products, deliver training, and conduct evaluation activities. Term lengths run for 12 months and may be renewed. Meetings are held quarterly; one meeting is face-to-face (generally in Missoula or Helena) and the other three are conference calls. In addition, council members may be asked to serve on work groups or task forces, which could require additional meetings by conference call.
