Get Involved in the SLN!

sln_logo_color_600dpiThe SLN accomplishes its mission through the work of dedicated volunteers. Committees, each one devoted to its own area of leadership, are open to all members of the SLN. 

 We’d love to have you participate in the work of supporting siblings throughout the lifespan by joining a committee

 Also, the following committees seek co-chairs:

 Support & InformationIncrease awareness of services and supports for siblings of people with disabilities across the Lifespan. The Support & Information Committee is responsible for:

  • Advocating for increased and enhanced services and supports for siblings of people with disabilities, especially in regards to the discrepancies between states and their service systems
  • Compiling and disseminating information on current services and supports that include and target siblings
  • Managing services and supports content on SLN website

Chapter Development: Manage and guide the internal affairs of the SLN, with a focus on strengthening and supporting existing and future chapters. The Chapter Development Committee is responsible for:

  • Maintaining existing communication tools between state and local chapters and develop new tools to facilitate increased support across chapters
  • Promoting chapter outreach and development at all levels
  • Representing siblings’ voices at the state and local level

Time commitments for committee members consist of a one-hour conference call quarterly, plus additional action based on activities between meetings (generally about 1-4 hours per month). 

Committee co-chairs lead meetings with the committee chairs and help coordinate the activities of the committee.
