Statement from AutismBC – November 13, 2018 – AutismBC (Autism Society of British Columbia) 

November 13, 2018

Over the last few days, some concerns and negative perspectives about AutismBC have been expressed by our members, by others in the autism community, and in social media.  While the basis of these issues is unfounded, we are deeply concerned about the undue stress this situation has caused.   Our Past President Laurie Guerra has resigned as a director of AutismBC, effective November 12th.

Our guiding light is to be a leader in the Autism community, providing education, training, information and support for families.   We want to ensure that our strong commitment to inclusion of all people is clear.  We want to preserve the trust of the community, and we will fortify our endeavor to be transparent and accountable to all members of the community.

As President of AutismBC, I encourage all those in our community to continue to engage with our activities and learn more about the important work we do across British Columbia.

Sincerely,

Gary Robins
President
AutismBC
