We are excited to welcome APSE’s Executive Director, Julie Christensen, to join us and open our conference! Barry Whaley, Director of the Southeast ADA Center and founding member of KY APSE, will close our conference with “Who Are the Heroes: A History of the Disability Rights Movement.” We have been apart for too long. It’s time to gather together, once again, to talk about how we make Employment First a reality, gain new ideas and strategies in the work of disability employment supports, connect and remember why we do this work and that we are all a part of a bigger movement. We cannot wait to see you May 11-12th!
