SILCK Board Seeking Applicants

Posted April 30, 2021 by Adam in

The State Independent Living Council of Kansas (SILCK) 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 network of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the Kansans with disabilities they serve. The council is authorized under Section 705 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act, as amended.

SILCK is in the process of seeking candidates to serve as volunteer council members appointed by the Governor of Kansas to three-year terms. SILCK seeks diverse membership, including individuals with various disabilities, cultures, ages, and gender identification, geographically located throughout the state.

Individuals should complete an online application form in its entirety. At a minimum, council members will be expected to:

  • Attend 4 meetings (generally in Topeka, but once a year at a CIL, remote in options available)
  • Participate on and be active members of committees
  • Support programs and initiatives of the council
  • Grow into leadership positions
