What does The Arc do with your membership information?
Your membership information supports local and national advocacy efforts by showing “strength in numbers” to legislators and other decision makers at all levels of government. It informs corporate and private sponsors of our impact and helps to secure corporate and affinity partners for discounts and offers available to active members. It supports credentialing of chapter leaders who have the opportunity at The Arc’s annual meetings to vote on issues impacting governance and position statements that affect our chapters and the people they serve.
