How to Join
The membership of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) is composed of officials from federal agencies that work on autism related issues and public stakeholders representing a wide array of perspectives, including autistic adults, parents and family members, advocates, community providers, and researchers. The diverse membership ensures that a wide variety of views, perspectives, and expertise are represented.
New and returning members of the IACC are appointed following each Congressional reauthorization of the Committee. Nominations of public members to serve on the Committee are solicited through a Call for Nominations announcement issued by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
The Autism CARES Act of 2019 was enacted on September 30, 2019. This new legislation authorizes the IACC to continue until 2024. A call for nominations will be issued in Fall 2019 to solicit new member nominations from the community. The call for nominations will provide information about the requirements for service and instructions on how to complete a nomination. Individuals will be able to self-nominate or be nominated by another person or organization.
If you would like to receive information and announcements about the 2019 IACC Call for Nominations, please sign up to receive IACC email updates or check back for updates to this web page.
