2023 Directors Forum & Annual Conference
Join NASDDDS for our first extended annual conference! For the first time, attendees will benefit from two full days of targeted content following the directors forum. Presentations feature subject matter experts as they introduce participants to state systems and the professionals leading the charge to bring truly innovative approaches to the field. On November 17th, attendees will once again have an opportunity to take a deeper dive into key areas within the I/DD field. Participants will have the chance to choose between topics of interest to explore in smaller groups with colleagues and subject matter experts. The NASDDDS Directors Forum and Annual Conference will leave you both motivated and prepared to take your work to the next level! *Make note the NASDDDS June 2024 conference will now be a smaller policy symposium for members with only limited sponsorship.
