Merger Updates


We are happy to announce that our organization name will be changing as of August 1, 2018, to Autism Society – Greater Macomb/Oakland (AS-GMO). This name change will allow us to better represent our service area to the state of Michigan.  

Our commitment to our members and partners remains our highest priority. Through this union as AS-GMO, we are providing our current and future members with the best representation of our newly merged organization.

As part of this exciting rebranding effort, AS-GMO will all be holding a celebration event on Sunday, July 22 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm at Play-Place Autism & Special Needs Center in Sterling Heights. We will celebrate the phenomenal work that the two affiliates have done over the past 30+ years and the board will be available to answer any questions about how we will move forward as one organization. Join us for this free family event, meet special ASD businesses owners and learn about our future family events.

This rebranding will not affect any current year event plans. However, this letter is intended to offer notice that all information & referral requests for the counties of Macomb, Oakland, & St Clair should be sent to the AS-GMO board using our updated contact information below:

P.O. Box 381267 - Clinton Twp, MI 48038-9997

(586) 445-4915

Please notethat our rebranding and name change will not impact tax identification, and charitable non-profit organization status, which will remain the same. For the next 6 months, our old PO Box will continue to forward mail to the new address and the long-standing macombasa gmail account will be periodically checked to help with this transition.

We thank you for your continued support and sponsorship,

  • 2018-19 Executive Board
  • President – Monica Bihar-Natzke
  • Vice-President – Angela Zender
  • Treasurer – Lindsay LaPonse
