HSRI Policy Specialist Elected to AAIDD Board

Date: 04/2016

In March, the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) announced that Alexandra (Alixe) Bonardi had been elected to its board of directors in the role of secretary-treasurer. Alixe is a senior policy specialist with HSRI and directs the NCI project. She will serve on the AAIDD board for three years, beginning on July 1.

“I’m looking forward to deepening my connection with AAIDD and to serving in this role. HSRI’s support was a major factor in my decision to run for this position to help lead AAIDD as it continues to develop and improve in response to changes in our field,” said Alixe.

Staff at HSRI have been involved in AAIDD in a variety of ways over many years including numerous presentations at conferences, contributions to the AAIDD journals and other publications, and collaborations with the local Massachusetts Chapter of AAIDD.  HSRI President Valerie Bradley was on the board of AAIDD in the 1980s, and served as president of the Association from 2005 to 2006. 

Valerie noted “Alixe will be a great asset to the AAIDD Board and will continue the Institute’s connection with the Association. Congratulations, Alixe!”
