The Arc Minnesota has announced that Andrea Zuber will be leaving her role as CEO effective June 30. 

Over the past five years, Zuber has led the Arc Minnesota with vision and dedication, culminating in significant achievements and transformative initiatives. She supported the organization in implementing the merger of several local chapters, solidifying it as a statewide organization supporting people in the West Central, Midstate, Metro, Southwest and Southeast regions of the state.  That was a historic change for services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities statewide. 

Her accomplishments include the stabilization of programs and services, streamlining operations and expanding equitable access to support across the state. Her strategic approach to fundraising and development has secured vital grants, ensuring the sustainability and growth of our mission-driven work. Under her guidance, the organization created a modernized, unified, statewide vision and a corresponding values framework. Andrea’s commitment to disability justice and equity has positioned the Arc Minnesota as a leader in disability justice, earning the entire organization recognition for its advocacy and impactful programs. 

“It has been an honor and privilege to lead this organization and work alongside the staff of the Arc Minnesota and its many partners to move our mission and vision forward for the past five years,” Zuber said. “Our values are now focused on centering the lived experience of people with disabilities, disability justice, and racial equity. Our vision is that people with disabilities belong in a world that welcomes them, where they have love, liberation, and freedom. I am so proud of what we have accomplished together.”  Her passion for disability justice will continue. Zuber plans to stay connected to the disability community, supporting the work she’s passionate about, and continuing to be an advocate for the human and civil rights of people with disabilities. 

The Arc Minnesota is now beginning its search for a new CEO to lead its mission to promote and protect the human rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The Arc Minnesota provides essential services to support people with IDD and their trusted supporters. Disabilities may include autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, fragile X, Williams syndrome and other disabilities. A key focus is leadership in public policy to promote and protect human rights and community inclusion. 

The Arc Minnesota Board of Directors has retained CohenTaylor Executive Search to conduct the search for its next CEO. To learn more, contact [email protected].
