Abstract

These By-laws and Operating Procedures are designed to guide the membership and work of the Iowa Autism Council. The Iowa Autism Council is a collaborative resource that envisions its role as an advocate for children and adults living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (autism and Asperger's and other conditions represented on the autism spectrum) and their families. As such, it is committed to representing individuals with diverse and changing educational needs. Iowa Autism Council (IAC) shall have, and will perform, functions and duties as specified by law. Responsibilities include offering advice, consultation, and recommendations to Governor Culver and the Iowa legislature regarding matters concerning the ASD population. The role of the Council members is to advise, not advocate, for an individual position. Advise means to inform, counsel, recommend, suggest or guide. To advocate means to plead for your case or position, to favor an individual case or argument. The advisory Council is to provide advice, based on facts and good judgment.
