The 2021 Membership campaign has begun! Membership is extremely important. The number of members we have directly impacted WWAARC’s ability to provide the best environment possible for the people we support and our employees. The Arc NY and its chapters are governed by a Board of Governors, made up of representatives chosen by the chapters. The number of seats each chapter holds on the board of governors (at the state level) is determined by its membership numbers.
