Dear USICD Member and Supporter,
Here we are in mid winter, and most of the country is in a deep freeze or feet of snow! We don't get much snow here in Washington, but we are knee deep in projects that create a lot of excitement for us, and hopefully for you. These include partnerships to support the disability rights movement in Burma (Myanmar), Kenya, Vietnam and Mexico, our advocacy for greater inclusion of people with disabilities in U.S. foreign assistance and international cooperation, and our fostering of a new generation of professionals with disabilities entering the international development field.
As President, I want to lead USICD to deliver more value for your membership. Collaboration is the way of the world for us in the disability community. USICD's strength is its membership, and we aim to provide you with the best information that money can buy.
If you or your organization is a current USICD member, you will receive a renewal notice soon. We want your membership experience to be valuable and beneficial, and will also be surveying our members this year to learn what benefit of membership you want and need. One thing we're considering is a dedicated Member's Corner of our website. We would like to provide a place for our members to interact, get answers to questions, and collaborate. But, we'd like your feedback in order to shape it to your needs.
So, when you receive the renewal notice and survey by email, please renew and complete the survey. We will compile survey responses and provide you with a report about what other members are asking for.
If you or your organization is not a USICD member, think about joining today! Visit here
to learn more. The staff and I are always available to answer and to hear your ideas.
Thank you for supporting USICD by being a member!
Patricia Morrissey, Ph.D.
