A microboard is a person-centered, non-profit entity formed by a small group of committed friends and family members who volunteer to help plan, develop and maintain the ongoing services necessary to support one person with a disability.
Using a unique planning tool called PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows With Hope), the Association helps each microboard develop a person-centered plan to address the individual's support needs on their journey to full self-determination, freedom, responsibility and authority. This PATH represents the hopes and dreams of the person and becomes the mission and focus of the microboard.
The Association provides board training and technical advice, including sample documents, organizational charts, and examples of what is required at each step of the microboard's incorporation and development.
A variety of local and national conferences offer workshops, training and continued opportunities for Microboard Association members to network
with one another during educational and informative sessions, sharing ideas and solving problems.
The Georgia Microboards Association is committed to providing continued support to the individual and to the development of relationships between members that will last a lifetime!
