Board of Directors Recruiting

The Self Reliance Board of Directors generally meets every other month on the last Tuesday at 5:00pm at the Center. Each meeting is noticed in advance by posting an announcement in the lobby before the meeting.  Board meetings are open to the public. As a consumer driven agency, it is important that people with disabilities volunteer to serve on the Board. 

Below are some documents that a prospective Board Member can use to familiarize themselves with Self-Reliance and the Board of Directors structure and responsibilities.  These documents can be downloaded and completed by the prospective Board Member.  If you have questions or are interested in learning about or serving on the Board of Directors, please contact Monica Washington at mailto:monicachicago@aol.com

To apply, please complete the Board Member Application and Background Check Consent Form.  Once completed, forward these documents to Monica Washington at monicachicago@aol.com    Once received, you will be contacted within 30 days by a member of the Board Recruitment Committee.
