The WSRC is mandated by the
Federal Rehabilitation Act and all members must be appointed by the GovernorThe mission of the Council is to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Washington State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) leadership as they make decisions and insure that the DVR customer's perspective is never forgotten.  The WSRC role is to review, analyze, and advise DVR and also to advocate for DVR customers.
The WSRC has four, two-day meetings per year (January, April, July, and October) at different locations across the state. The bulk of the councils work happens between meetings. However, prospective members should expect to commit about 8-10 hours per month to WSRC activities: reading emails, working on sub committees (generally by phone), or just keeping themselves educated on what's going on in vocational rehabilitation.  Expenses incurred due to travel and lodging for WSRC related activities are reimbursable. The perfect candidate is someone who is passionate about employment for all and wants to make the DVR system in Washington State the best in the nation.
