Over the last year, the Ability First Coalition has continued to evolve and we are excited to announce the appointment of three new members to our Executive Committee. You will undoubtedly recognize some long standing members of the coalition, as well as be introduced to new faces around the table. What all our members have in common is their overarching intent to motivate and support other employers to hire and retain persons with disabilities.
The Ability First Coalition Executive Committee
The Executive Committee of the Ability First Coalition is comprised of five members: two Co-Chairs, one Past Chair, one Treasurer, and one Secretary.
