About the Award
The Arc New York Marc N. Brandt Exceptional Leadership Award offers Chapters the opportunity to recognize a mid- to upper-management staff member or emerging leader who has demonstrated exceptional leadership ability and commitment, and has had a positive effect on the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

As the Organization’s State Executive Director and prior executive leader of the Sullivan County Chapter, Marc. N. Brandt provided more than four decades of unwavering guidance and leadership to the Organization. Under his leadership, Mr. Brandt oversaw significant transformation of programs and services that have had a profound impact on the lives of thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. His commitment was steadfast and uncompromised as he worked tirelessly to make communities across the state a better place for all its citizens.

During his tenure, Mr. Brandt worked directly with families, volunteers, self-advocates, community organizations, service agencies and governmental leaders to effect much needed change. He is a known and respected leader in the field across the nation, who guided the growth of The Arc New York to become the largest, and perhaps strongest, family-based organization serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in New York State.
