Board and Parent Dream Team Meeting

Our board met on Saturday, June 27,2009.  We decided to shorten and change our name from Autism Asperger Syndrome Services of Alabama, Inc. to Asperger Connection, Inc.  Kerry will file the appropriate paperwork to make that change quickly.  

We also voted to change our mission statement.  Our new mission statement is  Asperger Connection, Inc. is a charitable organization seeking to provide funding to improve the quality of life for children and adults diagnosed with High Functioning Autism (HFA) and Asperger Syndrome (AS).  

The Parent Dream Team also met after the board meeting.  Varied age groups were represented from elementary age to young adult.  Thanks to all parents for participating!

Priorities for funding discussed were (1) Internship program for high school students and young adults with HFA/AS, (2) Peer mentor program, (3) Generalization program for social skills groups.  

Fundraisers were also discussed.  Those confirmed will be (1) Whole Foods and Target program, (2) Facebook campaign, (3) Corporate Bank sponsorship, and (4) Dress Down Day.  Angela will head up an e-bay store in the future, and will be looking for donations at that time.
