Nominees under each category who receive the highest number of votes are elected.

Once formed, the first task of the committee is to elect a Chair and Deputy Chair.


Our current Executive Committee has strategically directed ADDC to advocate, engage and educate on disability inclusive development over the past two years.

Thank you to all those who have served in elected roles over the past two years, including our current elected members: Louise Coventry, Sabene Gomes, Fifi Rashando, Alexandra Kay, Christina Parasyn, Kate Moss and Alex Robinson.

Thank you for sharing your expertise, time and passion for building an inclusive world. ADDC would not be where it is today without their contributions.
