Make plans now to join us at the 2012 Disability Policy Seminar in Washington, D.C. for a special “meet & greet” breakfast for siblings of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). On Tuesday, April 24 at 7:45 a.m. The Arc’s new National Sibling Council will host a breakfast to give people attending the Disability Policy Seminar an opportunity to network and discuss the policy issues and other topics from their unique perspective as a sibling. You can find out more about The National Sibling Council and our new partnership with the Sibling Leadership Network and get involved on our website at www.thearc.org under the “I am a Sibling” header.
