State and regional AHEAD Affiliates provide disability service professionals with a network of local colleagues and accessible consultation and professional development opportunities. While state and local groups of disability service professionals exist without affiliation, AHEAD welcomes the affiliation of professional membership groups that are committed to enhancing higher educational opportunities for student with disabilities. Interested groups can learn more about affiliation by contacting the Board of Directors Affiliate Liaison Katy Washington from the University of North Texas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AHEAD Board of Directors must review changes to either the mission or by-laws of a state or regional Affiliate.
Affiliates and AHEAD jointly sign an affiliate agreement that outlines the responsibilities of each party to the agreement.
