Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of The Arc of North Carolina is comprised of volunteers who care deeply about people with IDD and their inclusion in their communities. The majority of our board members are either people who self-identify as having IDD or are a family member of someone with IDD; the rest are business professionals, retired persons, or other interested community members.
