NCIL Goes Fully Virtual!

Like many organizations, when NCIL went remote in March 2020, we had to adapt very quickly. While we missed the social and practical benefits of a physical office, it became apparent that our productivity wasn’t diminished by working remotely. We could still get the work done – and we did. We’ve hosted two virtual conferences, transitioned previously on-location trainings to webinars, and made countless gains in our policy work. In addition, we found that remote work was much more accessible for many of our staff.

Going virtual made financial and logistical sense. So, as of today, we are pleased to announce that our office is now fully remote. Our business phone numbers are still active, and you can reach us by the same phone numbers as always. Our new mailing address is as follows:

National Council on Independent Living
PO Box 31260
Washington, DC 20030

We look forward to continuing our work and the future we will create together.
