We represent organizations who are leading the IDD services field in California. Membership in CDSA offers professional development and networking opportunities.
All CDSA activity is driven by members. Committees offer an opportunity for members from a variety of professional backgrounds to learn from each other and make decisions that guide our work.
Current CDSA Committees include:
- Public Policy
- Public Relations
In three areas of the state, CDSA member organizations meet regularly to discuss topics impacting service programs in their communities or regional center catchment areas. Led by members, Regional Caucuses solve problems together and keep participants informed on matters of local importance.
A small sampling of the topics discussed include:
- Best practices in delivering services and managing the business.
- Challenges with implementing funding and policy changes, including interpretations by Regional Centers.
- Activities and strategies to raise community awareness and gain legislators’ support.
