Commission for Persons with Disabilities Vacancies. Application Deadline Extended to 4-22-11


3/15/2011

Cambridge City Manager Robert W. Healy is seeking persons interested in serving on the Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities (CCPD) advisory board.  Made up of 11 Members who serve three-year terms in a volunteer capacity, the CCPD board meets on the second Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m.  CCPD seeks to build a membership that reflects the cultural and racial diversity of the city, is cross-disability in nature and representative of the different geographical areas of the community.  Members must be current residents of Cambridge.

CCPD works to maximize access to all aspects of Cambridge community life for individuals with disabilities, and strives to raise awareness of disability matters, to eliminate discrimination, and to promote equal opportunity for people with all types of disabilities – physical, mental and sensory.  CCPD members are expected to work with other members and CCPD staff to fulfill the goals and objectives of the CCPD Ordinance (CMC Chapter 2.96).  CCPD members are expected to attend monthly meetings, participate in subcommittees, and work on various short and/or long-term projects, as needed.

For more information, contact Michael Muehe, Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities at 617-349-4692 or mmuehe@cambridgema.gov. Interested persons should submit a letter by Friday, April 22, 2011 describing their relevant experience and the kinds of disability-related issues or projects that interest them (along with a resume if possible) to:
