Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities Vacancies

The Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities was created by resolution 76R-009 on 1/19/1976 to expand opportunities for all children and adults with disabilities throughout Minneapolis, without regard to disability or other protected class status, work to improve life’s opportunities by resolving conflicts involving persons with disabilities and protect their right to fully participate in society.

Applicants must be knowledgeable or have expertise in one of the following area: accessible housing, transportation, employment, or program and architectural accessibility. Members should recognize that people with disabilities have unique concerns regarding their daily activities.

Meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., in Room 132 City Hall. There is no compensation for attending meetings. The committee meeting locations are accessible to persons with disabilities. Four unexcused absences during a calendar year will be cause for dismissal.

Deadline: Open until filled.
