Accent on Ability’s board focuses on providing support to members of A-Way Express Courier, a social initiative comprised of people who have experienced mental health issues, and that provides meaningful work and socializing opportunities for its members.   Board members are expected to:

  • Commit to a two-year term on the board
  • Regularly attend board meetings, held approximately every six weeks, throughout the year
