Autistics United Board Members Wanted!

Autistics United Board Members Wanted!

 

Our Mission Statement- We are different. We are different in what we do and how we do it. Autistics United (AU) isn’t just about creating a community, it’s about creating a neurodiversity movement in Western North Carolina. 

Celebrating Neurodiversity as a Community- AU is a community collective of autistic individuals, helping and learning from one another. We come together as equals to build community and understanding with a non-judgmental attitude that serves to help all autistics and their families. AU is an inclusive, interdependent autism community by and for autistics- all autistics.

 

What we are looking for:

  • Board members that have experience being on a board, working for a nonprofit or have professional backgrounds such as in business or social work etcetera.

 

  • We welcome you even if you have no experience as long as you are passionate, dedicated and willing to set a little time each month or every other month to do your part.

 

  • If we could find some real movers and shakers that could help us, that would be great!

 

  • We are looking for people willing to help with fundraising. The most important objective of the board is working together to raise money and bring in revenue for the nonprofit. This includes fundraising, looking for grants, etcetera. There are reasonable, simple, realistic, doable activities all board members can participate in to help with this goal.

 

  • We are looking for individuals on the autism spectrum or who are neurodiverse. We are also looking for those of you who have a friend or family member on the spectrum or have worked with someone on the autism spectrum and have a deep understanding of autism.

 

  • Once we know you are interested, then we will talk about board positions that would be a good fit for you.

 

  • Contact Us For More Information- Get on our email list to find out exactly what we’re doing each month and stay up to date on any changes to our schedule.

If you are doubtful of your ability to become a leader, but have the passion, come to one of our groups and check us out! We are here to provide support and guidance, so anyone who is interested is strongly encouraged to come.

We’ll have monthly Leadership Team meetings for scheduling groups, checking in & accessing how we can best support each other.

If you are under 18 years old and want to be on the leadership team for the ATU  group, you are welcome to have one of your parents, a caregiver or direct care staff help you and work with you to support you in a leadership role. Likewise, if you are any age and need a support person to work with you in a leadership role, you are totally welcome to have that kind of support.

The groups we need the leadership team to help with are the Adult Autistics United Group (A.A.U), the Autistic Teens United Group (A.T.U.), the Girls’ Day Out Group as well as our special interest groups. 

 

If you are interested, please email or text us and we will put you on the leadership mailing list. When we start our leadership workshops, we can figure out a date that is good for everyone.
