Ivymount has teamed up with SEEC and Project SEARCH to launch the Business Advisory Council (BAC).
By combining the industry knowledge and professional networks of its members, the mission of BAC is to increase workforce opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the local metropolitan area.
A launch event, hosted by Dawson’s Market in Rockville, brought together motivated members from the local business community to share their invaluable support and advice.
Lu Merrick of Ivymount said, “BAC will work to identify and build employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our area. We plan to meet regularly to share industry knowledge and professional networks to support the mission of increasing workforce opportunities for individuals with a wide range of skills and abilities who also happen to be ‘differently-abled’.”
Ivymount would like to thank the following businesses for their support of the BAC:
Choice Hotels International
Dogfish Head Alehouse
1st Choice LLC
Bethesda Country Club
My Office Products
