Citizens with Disabilities Committee Welcomes New Members

You can work on a MACCD committee


By Christina Clift
On Wednesday September 21, 2016 the Memphis Advisory Council for Citizens with Disabilities welcomed aboard four new members during its meeting at the Benjamin L. Hooks Library.  Brandy Fox, Lu Conley, Rita Tait, and Gina Brady were appointed to serve on the council by Mayor Strickland.  They filled existing vacancies on the council and will serve for the next two years.  

“They will each bring their own unique skill set and prospective to the council.  We all welcome them aboard and look forward to seeing what great things they will do,” stated Gary Smith Memphis Advisory Council for Citizens with Disabilities (MACCD) Chair.

If you are interested in serving on the MACCD, you must complete a biographical information form and submit it along with your resume for consideration.  Once a vacancy becomes available all applications are reviewed with the final approval being made by the Mayor.  Individuals can also chose to serve on one of our four committees.  They include Disability Awareness, Transportation, Housing, Access, and Recreation, and Education and Employment.  You do not have to be a member of the council to serve on a committee.
