NCI Leadership Council

The NCI Leadership Council is made up of people that receive NCI services. The Leadership Council serves a very important function as members meet monthly to address issues related to NCI services and self-advocacy. Members of the Leadership Council provide feedback on NCI services and agency policies and procedures.

All NCI Leadership Council members have also completed self-advocacy training. They have used these skills to reach out to all people with disabilities, regardless of who provides their services by creating People First of Scott County. People First of Scott County is the local chapter of People First, an international self-advocacy group run for and by people with Developmental Disabilities.
