Topic: Christopher Banks, President and CEO of the Autism Society of America

The conversation tomorrow is with Christopher Banks. It is a chat that could not be more fitting as we kick off Autism Awareness month. As President and CEO of The Autism Society of America, Chris presides over the nation’s leading grassroots organization. With 75+ affiliates and more than 620,000 individuals impacted by autism, the Autism Society is well-positioned to move the dial from simple awareness to genuine acceptance of persons on the autism spectrum.

Join us as we discuss advocacy, education, support, and community-building at the local and state level.  Tomorrow’s show will likely be one of several conversations with Chris to provide listeners with vital information and new insights around an ever-changing landscape.
