GMSA supports 18 local self-advocacy groups in Vermont. This handbook is the basic guide we give to all local self-advocacy groups to help them start and run their groups. The handbook outlines best practices for how to organize your own self-advocacy group. It includes information about how to:

  • Run meetings
  • Problem-solve
  • Set goals
  • Pick officers
  • Find an advisor
  • Fundraise
  • Include support staff in group activities

This tool is a great resource to help self-advocates form their own groups and be organized and successful.
