Full Council Meetings

Quarterly Meetings take place in March, June, September, and December throughout the State. VTDDC’s Executive Committee may schedule additional meetings if necessary; these are publicly noticed on this website. Members of the public are welcome to attend any Council or committee meeting.

At Quarterly Meetings Council members and staff talk about local and national issues affecting people with developmental disabilities and their families, review VTDDC's budget, make funding decisions, participate in brief trainings related to current laws and practices, and invite grantees to share the outcomes of their community projects. Every five years, VTDDC members have the additional responsibility of developing a Five-Year State Plan that will guide how the Council uses its resources. The Council is responsible for recruiting, hiring, and evaluating the Executive Director.
