TNCO Committees set the pace of our overall success by endorsing and encouraging planning, cooperation and understanding amongst service providers.  We continually look to recruit professionals from within our agencies that are willing to offer their unique talents, valuable ideas and creative solutions to ensure our agenices are offering quality services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilties across the state. The best way to get involved and network within TNCO is to find a committee that interests you.  please view the committee descriptions here.
