Legislative Advocacy takes place on a year-round basis and keeps IAC and our member agencies in the forefront on issues that shape our field, affect the functioning of our service providers and influence the services delivered to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.  Our Associate Executive Director for Legislative Affairs works closely with the members of the New York State Senate and Assembly and their staffs, both in Albany and in their district offices, to ensure that they understand how budgetary and legislative issues will affect real people. Employees of IAC member agencies, along with staff, program participants and families have the opportunity to participate in various legislative and advocacy activities coordinated through IAC.
