ARC MARYLAND STATE CONVENTIONnFriday, May 17, 2019 8:00am nTurf Valley Resortn2700 Turf Valley RoadnEllicott City, MD 21042nThis year’s plenary speaker is Joseph M. Macbeth, Executive Director, The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals. As advocates, families, providers and policy makers find themselves at a critical point in shifting support models for people with disabilities toward individual autonomy and self-direction, this keynote offers a chance to reflect on how the strength of advocacy led the community living movement over the past 40 years. We will also reflect on the changes coming to our system that are driven by funders, families and people with disabilities and how service organizations must implement continuous quality improvement practices in their approaches to empowering people to lead self-directed lives. Breakout session topics include advocacy, building natural supports, professional supports and innovations in housing. nTo register, please visit:nhttp://www.thearcmd.org/events/the-arc-maryland-state-convention/nThere is a fee for this workshop sponsored by the Arc of Maryland, scholarships are available.
