How to Join
The membership of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) is composed of Federal officials from 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 most recent Call for Nominations took place in 2014, following the passage of the Autism CARES Act of 2014, and the current public members of the Committee were announced in October 2015. Their terms will run through September 2019. The next slate of new and returning public members of the Committee will be selected after the next Congressional reauthorization, which is expected in 2019.
