A Note from Lois Gibson, new ORA Executive Director
I'm so proud to accept the position of leadership with ORA. Chris has done an outstanding job and I am eager to continue the momentum of her efforts.
Providing services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities allows me to tap into my passion for speaking up for people who cannot always speak up for themselves. It gives me the opportunity to work from my heart and to leave the world a little better than I found it. Working as the Executive Director at ORA will let me take this one step further by supporting and advocating for providers across the state who are committed to this compassionate, important work.
My vision for ORA includes continuing to build and enhance the relationships with our partners in the state to reinforce our work in advocacy. I'm looking forward to learning more about the strengths of the ORA staff, and I am interested in exploring new support roles for ORA members.
My door is always open to members and I look forward to meeting with each provider in the coming weeks to learn more about your challenges and successes, as well as your vision for the future of ORA.
