The Arc of Indiana’s Executive Director to deliver Keynote at Hamilton Center’s Annual Dinner on October 27, 2009 - September 17, 2009
Hamilton Center is pleased to announce that the Keynote Address for the 2009 Annual Dinner will be delivered by John Dickerson, Executive Director of The Arc of Indiana. The Arc of Indiana was established in 1956 by parents of children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who joined together to build a better and more accepting world for their children. Spectrum Services-a division of Hamilton Center-- is the only program of its kind to be operated by an Indiana based Community Mental Health Center.
John Dickerson has served as Executive Director for The Arc of Indiana since 1983. Dickerson has also worked at The Arc of the United States in the areas of Chapter Support and Membership. He is recognized throughout Indiana and the nation as a leader in the disability community, serving as an effective voice for self-advocates, parents, volunteers and professionals.
In his years with The Arc, John has had many opportunities to serve with self-advocates, parents, volunteers, and professionals. It is their contribution that he believes has helped him with whatever accomplishments he has been able to achieve for people with disabilities and their families.
