Professional Development Event @ Historical Society

April 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

For our latest professional development seminar, Anne Couldridge will discuss the role of leadership, and how it impacted her career and life.

A little about Anne:

For the last eight years, Anne Couldridge has passionately worked to create new opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families.  Anne has held leadership roles in a variety of community and professional settings.  She has been active in grassroots community organizing, state-level planning committees and has co-Chaired the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Task Force of Cumberland & Perry Counties.


In her role as Director of Development of The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC), Anne has collaborated with RC Theatres to begin regular showings of “Sensory Friendly Films”. She collaborated with Harrisburg International Airport, Delta Airlines, the Transportation Security Administration and The Arc of PA on the “Wings for All” project.  This project allowed special needs families to participate in a simulated airport experience.  Recently, she secured a large grant from the Comcast Foundation to create a digital learning lab to help people with IDD gain the skills needed for their employment goals.


In October of 2017, Anne was named Executive Director of CPARC where she continues to champion her vision of making the community a more inclusive place to live, work and play for people with IDD and their families.
