I am honoured to have been elected Chair of the Board of Directors for 2017-18.
The Board is a key element of the Kerry’s Place governance process and we are fortunate to have a Board of Directors who bring an excellent combination of relevant skills and experiences to Kerry’s Place.
I have been a Board member for 8 years and I am regularly impressed by the person-centered approach and the dedication and caring shown by Kerry’s Place staff in providing services to persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
At our 2017 AGM we announced our updated Strategic Plan, which will guide us as we move forward. Our mission continues to be to enhance the quality of life for persons with ASD and to empower them and their families through evidence-based, innovative and person-based supports. Notably, we will focus on the changing needs of persons living with ASD so as to provide a comprehensive continuum of service and support from childhood to old age.
Mark Walsh, Board Chair
