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. The 2019 IACC Call for Nominations is now open. Nominations will be accepted between Tuesday, November 19, 2019 and Friday, February 21, 2020. Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by another person or organization.
