The Vital Role of ERI's Board Members
Board members at ERI perform a vital role in our work to support the employment goals of people with disabilities. They not only provide direction for ERI’s fiscal, programmatic, and legal wellbeing – they are the leaders that make the hopes of many a reality.
ERI's Impact on Employment for People with Disabilities
The barriers that stand between people with disabilities and their career goals are numerous and complex but can be overcome with proper guidance. ERI provides that guidance through direct service and helping other service providers navigate the tricky path toward employment for people with disabilities. Since our founding in 1990 we have become a leader both in Wisconsin and nationally, and our board of directors has been a critical part of that success.
“ERI Board members are committed to the mission/purpose, which has been key for me in terms of my desire to remain a part of the Board. ERI has made a tremendous impact on the people and organizations it touches.”
Cheryl, current Board Member
