The people who are in charge of the regional centers are called the Board of Directors (BOD).
The Lanterman Act says that 75% of the regional center Board of Directors must be adults with developmental disabilities and/or family members of an individual with developmental disabilities. All regional center board members are volunteers who want to make sure the regional center does a good job helping people with developmental disabilities.
Westside Regional Center’s Board Of Directors are composed of:
- individuals who have demonstrated interest in, or knowledge of, developmental disabilities;
- persons with fiscal expertise, governance or management experience;
- and representatives of each of the various categories of disability to be served by the corporation.
The Board of Directors reflect the geographic and ethnic characteristics of the area served. To read the bylaws (rules that outline how the WRC Board will operate), please click here. The Board of Directors typically meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00PM. All meetings are open to the public and everyone is permitted to attend.
There are several advisory committees to the Board of Directors. These committees include the: Client Services Committee, Consumer Advisory Committee, Equity Committee, Executive Committee, Finance Committee, Nominating Committee, Political Action and Outreach Committee, and the Service Provider Advisory Committee.
