From the Executive Director

January 2017

Happy New Year 2017 to everyone!

Thanks for all of your contributions to making this a memorable Holiday Season for all.  Please remain vigilant in your advocacy for all people with disabilities, for those served by GRS and for GRS as an organization.  There are many clouds on the horizon that could potentially affect the people we serve. The threats to federal Medicaid have never been more real and the decade long decline of funding from our increasingly parsimonious NC legislators, when it comes allocating state dollars, has left us in a precarious position. I will keep you posted.  

In the coming newsletters, we will be highlighting some of the people that comprise GRS’ Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors oversees the management of our organization and appoints GRS’ Executive Director/CEO. As a board of volunteers for our nonprofit organization, they approve and make recommendations on GRS’ budgets, personnel policies, human rights issues, and quality improvement and quality assurance activities. Members of the board advocate for us in the community. They lead our fundraising efforts and look forward to sponsoring VIVA LAS VEGAS III in August, 2017.

May we all have a safe and prosperous New Year.
