Weinberg looks forward to expanding the visibility and impression of AuSM. “In order to get the attention and research-funding necessary to bring about an impact for the nearly 100,000 people living with autism in Minnesota, it’s vital that we share their stories with friends, neighbors, community leaders and elected officials,” he said. “It’s important for people across the entire state to be aware of the incredible resources this organization has developed over the past 42 years.”

According to Todd Schwartzberg, President of the AuSM Board of Directors, Weinberg’s expertise will help not only to continue the great work done by AuSM, but also will expand collaborations and initiatives with those with whom AuSM works and serves in the community. “We are truly pleased and excited about the leadership Jonah will bring to AuSM,” Schwartzberg said.  

Established in 1971, the Autism Society of Minnesota is a self-funded organization committed to education, advocacy and support designed to enhance the lives of those affected by autism from birth through retirement. Visit www.ausm.org for more information.
