About ADDP

The Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers (ADDP) is a statewide advocacy organization representing more than 130 provider agencies who offer an array of services to individuals with developmental disabilities and brain injuries. The Association aims to ensure strength of its member organizations, so they can be successful providing community-based services. ADDP provides leadership on public policy, financing, regulatory, and service–specific issues. One of ADDP’s primary principles is to work collaboratively with all branches of government to ensure optimal service delivery for the organizations it represents. The ADDP staff consists of a small team that “wears multiple hats” and maintains ongoing dialogue with members to help inform the Association’s advocacy and future direction.  

 Position Description: Provide research and public policy analysis to ADDP’s leadership team

to support the Association’s strategies related to state budget, regulations, legislation, services, and

other special initiatives.

At times, it requires the ability to work both flexible and extended hours, and, post-pandemic, it may require travel throughout the state to meetings (reimbursement provided). The job comes with a starting salary range of $60,000 – $75,000 (salary commensurate with experience) and generous perks and benefits, including medical and dental insurance (paid 80% by Association), long-term disability and life insurance (paid 100% by Association), flex spending plan, health reimbursement arrangement, matching/contributory 403(b) plan, accrued paid time off (23 days of PTO in year one), 13 paid holidays/year, hybrid work schedule, professional development funding, cell phone reimbursement, and laptop. 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Provide support and/or function as a lead to several ADDP committees focused on provider operations. Requires identifying issues, facilitating meetings, developing agendas, taking meeting minutes, scheduling meetings, and networking with members one-on-one and as a group.
