We are thrilled to announce the selection of Elizabeth Moran as our new Executive Director. She will officially begin her new role as Executive Director on November 28, 2022. The selection was made after an extensive national and local search and selection process.

Elizabeth comes to The Arc of Colorado with an extensive background in working in disability rights across the lifespan, including her most recent work as Chief Counsel at the American Bar Association (ABA) Commission on Law and Aging, where she provided substantive support and expertise to the Commission specifically in the areas of guardianship, supported decision-making, capacity issues and abuse, neglect and exploitation.

Please join me in welcoming Elizabeth into this exciting new chapter in The Arc of Colorado’s history. We are incredibly excited for Elizabeth to join the Arc family and lead us into our 66th year as a chapter.

A proper biography and photo incoming. 

Thank you!
