About the Training

This presentation offered the latest information on SILC Composition. Who is on your SILC?  Filling the seats on your SILC can be difficult even if you fully understand all of the rules around SILC composition.  Everyone knows the SILC must be majority people with disabilities, but the rules are much more complicated than that, with limits on terms, members from CILs or state agencies, and more.  

Target Audience

SILC Chairs, Executive Directors, staff and Council members.

What You Will Learn:

  • What the federal law requires for composition of statewide independent living councils (SILCs).

  • How states implement the federal requirements.

  • What ongoing issues SILCs and states frequently face regarding SILC composition, including recruitment, orientation, and outreach.

  • What are some effective practices for responding to those issues?
