Membership Information & Application

As discussed at the July 31, 2019, public meeting, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and the California Health and Human Services Agency are undertaking a new application process to find members for the Developmental Services (DS) Task Force and related DS Workgroups. We are re-establishing the DS Task Force and DS Workgroups to make sure the groups reflect our diverse community and services. Anyone interested in membership in either the DS Task Force and/or one of the DS Workgroups are welcome to apply.

Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Applications can be submitted via email or US Mail. You only need to complete one application (a 2 page PDF form) to apply for membership on the DS Task Force and/or any DS Workgroups. For example:

  1. You can apply to participate on the DS Task Force and not participate on a workgroup.
  2. You can apply to participate on the DS Task Force and one or more workgroups.
  3. You can apply to participate in only one workgroup, without being a member of the DS Task Force.
  4. You can apply to participate in more than one workgroup, without being a member of the DS Task Force.

Regional Centers, advocacy and provider organizations, and advisory committees are encouraged to share this information.

If you have any questions or need help completing an application, please email DSTaskForce@dds.ca.gov or call 916-654-1946.
