On behalf of Delta State Deaf Development in Government Forum in United State of America, plan to work with Joint National Association of Persons with Disability (Delta State-Chapter) to form Delta State Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (DSGCPD to appoint a committee to develop new skills and find jobs for job seekers with disabilities by providing them with early access to employment services and supports to help them find jobs in their communities in Delta State. Delta State Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (DSGCPD will discuss to help address the employment challenges facing people with disabilities in Delta State. Jointly our forum in USA with Jointly National Association of Persons With Disability (Delta State-Chapter) needs to newly create Delta State Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (DSGCPD ) focuses the rehabilitation system on providing quality rehabilitation services that empower people with all disabilities to obtain competitive integrated employment. It will help reduce the number of disabled youth being tracked into sheltered subminimum wage employment in Delta State and represents a significant improvement in policies designed to create and enhance employment opportunities for Delta workers with disabilities. We can work together to improve employment opportunities and economic prospects for employment for all Delta, including those with disabilities. We will work to write to the legislation to pass the bill Delta State Disabilities Act and Delta State Commission on Disabilities.

Forming Delta State Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (DSGCPD) works toward a State where people with disabilities have the opportunity to enjoy full and equal access to lives of independence, productivity, and self-determination. The Governor appoints twelve members to serve on the Committee, seven of whom must be people with disabilities. Representatives from deaf, handicapped, one from Delta State ministry of social development, one from Delta State house of Assemble. serve as ex- official or advisory members.

The Committee makes recommendations to the Delta State Governor and Legislature on disability issues; promotes compliance with disability-related laws; promotes a network of local committees doing similar work; recognizes employers for hiring and retaining employees with disabilities, and recognizes media professionals and students for positively depicting Texans with disabilities. The members and staff also provide technical assistance, information and referral services to citizens of Texas on issues affecting Texans with disabilities. Members of the Committee work on issues related to Access, Communications, Education, Emergency Management, Health, Housing, Recreation, Transportation, Veterans and Workforce.
Delta State Governor Committee on Disabilities need to elect to continue the work of the committee between general meetings. It is the committee members' responsibility to make sure that decisions taken at its association's general meeting are acted on during their year in office.

What size should a committee be?
Most committees have between 5 and 10 members. Delta State Governor Committee on Disabilities need to choose one Deaf, blind, disabilities representative with more than 15 members tend to be unwieldy and difficult to operate. committees with less than 6 people tend to be unrepresentative. We need to find the talent people from Delta State who has an experience, knowledge, skills and abilities they bring to work

Who and what are the office bearers or honorary officers?
Every member of a committee has an important role to play and contribution to make. However, there are 3 posts or offices which need to be filled in order that the committee can operate effectively.

The chairperson, whose role is chairing committee meetings and acting as a spokesperson on behalf of the community association when necessary.

The treasurer, whose role is looking after the association's income and expenditure.

The secretary, whose role is dealing with the association's organization, including arranging meetings and taking minutes.


Delta State Deaf Development in Government Forum (USA) plan to discuss with JONAP and Association of Persons Living With Disabilities, Delta State Chapter to work together to ask Delta State Governor to forum the Delta State Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities.

The Delta State Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities builds community partnerships through its support of a network of all local governments areas and disabilities communities in Delta State . The Delta State Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities is able to disperse information throughout the Delta State and reach a range of people and organizations. Through grass-roots efforts, the local committees raise awareness of the needs and abilities of persons with disabilities and work to address those needs specifically identified in our community, we need to address a wide range of areas, including housing, transportation, employment, education and access. We also bring a wide range of entities together including individuals, local public agencies and officials, non-profit organizations and private businesses. We will also discuss to write our Delta with Disabilities Act law with Delta State House of Assemble . Delta Disabilities Act law mean prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in many areas, including employment, public accommodations, transportation and education. The ADA is critical to ensuring accessibility and full inclusion for men and women with disabilities.
