Employment & Transportation Ad Hoc Committee

The Employment & Transportation Committee (E&T) is an ad hoc committee of the Governor’s Council. It meets monthly in person at the Council office and by teleconference. Members include parents of individuals with disabilities, service providers, self-advocates, others involved in agencies that provide employment and transportation services to people with disabilities, and public community members.

What does the E&T do?

The committee works on priority issues and activities related to improving employment outcomes and transportation accessibility for people with disabilities in Alaska. Committee members may be involved in workgroups that are conducting:

  • research
  • planning
  • monitoring
  • advocacy

Family and self-advocate participation on all committees of the Council is welcome and encouraged. It’s a great way to participate in the continuing development of employment and transportation opportunities for people with disabilities in the state. We work closely with the State as a Model Employer Task Force (S.A.M.E.), the Alaska Integrated Employment Initiative (AIEI) grant and the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority’s Beneficiary Employment Initiative.
