Ryan Rehder Joins Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council Leadership Position

Des Moines, Iowa - December 10, 2012 - Iowa Governor Terry Branstad recently appointed several new members to the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council (DD Council) for three-year terms. Among the new council members is Ryan Rehder of Storm Lake.

"The DD Council is important because they can effect positive change for people with disabilities. I would like to see more accessible doors, buildings and ramps for people with disabilities in central Iowa," Rehder states. 

“We are always looking for individuals to bring valuable insight through real-world experiences to the Council to help us work toward reaching our goals for Iowans with disabilities,” says Andy Kaiser, DD Council Chair of LeClaire, Iowa. “This new member brings another set of fresh ideas to the Council, and Ryan’s  input is greatly appreciated.”

The DD Council is a federally-funded state agency that advocates for the development of services and supports so that Iowans with developmental disabilities can make choices and take control of their lives.

The Council promotes the development of a coordinated system of services and support that provides opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to be independent, productive, integrated and included in their communities. Council members and staff participate in forums, on committees, in work groups, develop written materials and responses, meet with legislators and collaborate with other organizations to create positive results for Iowans with disabilities.

For more information, contact the DD Council at 866.432.2846 or send an email to contactus@idaction.org.
