IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The NC Stakeholder Engagement Group (NC SEG) was a cross-disability advocacy initiative focusing on shaping the long-term support and service systems through meaningful engagement and dialogue with policymakers. It was generously funded by the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) for three years.

Since the November election, the political landscape has changed rapidly and expansively, and we anticipate these changes will have a substantial impact on the long-term supports and service systems for people with disabilities. It is vital that the authentic, constructive voice of consumers and family members be at the table as the system evolves. The funding from NCCDD ended in November 2016. The NC SEG is currently looking for funding to continue its advocacy efforts. While we seek funding from a variety of sources, the formal activities of the group have been suspended. This page will be updated by Community Bridges Consulting Group pro bono until funding is secured.

If you know of a funding source or possibility, please e-mail Kelly@cb-cg.com. Thank you!

  • Set up a meeting with your State Representative or Senator, LME/MCO provider, agency provider and/or local organizations telling them about your agreement with the Stakeholder Engagement Group, and the outcomes and expectations from the group. You could meet alone, with friends or family members, or with several members of an advocacy group you participate in. You can give them this information so they have it in their hands.
  • Take this information to your local CFAC group and share it with them and encourage them to become active in supporting the work of the Stakeholder Engagement Group.
  • Tell your local paper about this group and why it is so important to people who have disabilities and their families. If you are interested in getting the information into your local paper, email info@ncseg.com and we can help you with a sample.
