The New York State Independent Living Council, Inc. (NYSILC) is an independent, non-profit state council with the primary responsibility to jointly develop, monitor and evaluate the three-year Statewide Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) with the Federal network of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the New Yorkers with disabilities they serve. The council is authorized under Section 705 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act, as amended.

NYSILC is in the process of seeking one candidate to serve as a volunteer council member appointed by the NYS Regents to a three-year term. NYSILC seeks diverse membership, including individuals with various disabilities, cultures, ages, and gender identification, geographically located throughout the state.

Based on current council membership, NYSILC can enhance its purpose by encouraging applicants from the greater New York City area, who have a disability with a diverse race/ethnicity and or gender identification.

Individuals should complete an Application Form in its entirety (which requests two references with contact information) and include a copy of their resume. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, June 27, 2018. Refer to the NYSILC background and member expectations for more information.

If you have any questions about the application, process, or further duties of council members, contact Brad Williams at the NYSILC office: (518) 427-1060 (voice/TTY), (518) 427-1139 fax, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
