Full Access Member: Pam Ring

Pam Ring is currently the Executive Director of The Arc Lane County.   She was the Full Access founding board president and held that role for more than eight years.  After a few years away from our board she graciously stepped back in as a board member, particularly to support the transitions the agency is undertaking with a new organizational structure and new leadership.  Her history with the development of Support Services Brokerages is renowned and she is a tireless advocate for high quality supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

The Arc advocates to enhance the dignity, expand the opportunities, and protect the rights of persons with intellectual disabilites and related developmental disabilities and their families.  Their mission is closely aligned with Full Access so the fit between Pam and Full Access is perfect!
