Chapter Benefits Spotlight: Bylaws

Is your local chapter implementing your duties and responsibilities as per The Arc’s Bylaws? Local chapters, consistent with available personnel and resources, should at a minimum:

  • Engage in advocacy on behalf of people with IDD and their families;
  • Assist people with IDD, family members, the media, public officials, and members of the public to access information about the needs, issues and concerns of people with IDD and their families;
  • Support and mobilize constituents in support of public policy initiatives at the state and national level

Contact Karen at if you’d like a copy of Bylaws of The Arc or ideas on how your chapter can meet the letter and spirit of our bylaws.
