The Washington State Rehabilitation Council is currently recruiting for two positions on the council:
The Current or Former Customer of DVR Representative will contribute their diverse perspective on opportunities and barriers experienced by people with disabilities when trying to achieve and maintain meaningful employment.
The Business Representative will be the "voice of business" on the council. Specifically, we are looking for a business owner, executive, supervisor, or employee who can provide a business perspective on opportunities and barriers experienced by people with disabilities in the workplace.
It is important to the WSRC that the individuals be passionate about employment for all and want to actively contribute to making the DVR program in Washington State the best in the nation.
The Council's activities are to amplify the interests and concerns of customers in all aspects of DVR planning and service delivery. The WSRC has four, two-day meetings per year (February, May, August, and November) in different areas of the state. Council subcommittees also establish work plans and meet monthly by conference call to coordinate their work. Prospective members should expect to commit about 4-6 hours per month to WSRC activities, such as reading and responding to emails, participating in subcommittee activities (generally by phone), and keeping up with what's going on in vocational rehabilitation.
Expenses incurred due to travel and lodging for WSRC related activities are reimbursable. The perfect candidate is someone with a disability who is passionate about employment for all and wants to make the DVR program in Washington State the best in the nation.
