Board of Directors

The governing board for Disability Rights Pennsylvania (DRP) must be comprised of between 14 and 21 individuals who are diverse in terms of age, ethnicity, geographical location, gender, and disability.

A majority of board members must be individuals with disabilities or have an immediate family member with a disability. The Board makes every effort to ensure that board appointments reflect the ethnic, racial, geographic, and disability diversity of Pennsylvania. Board members are appointed based on a demonstrated interest and experience in issues affecting Pennsylvanians with disabilities.
