Request For Presentations
Annual Fall Conference: October 22 & 23, 2015
Tan-Tar-A Resort – Osage Beach, Missouri
Deadline: June 1, 2015
On October 22 & 23, 2015, you are invited to share your expertise at the 2015 MACDDS Annual Conference at the Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach. The Missouri Association of County Developmental Disabilities Services (MACDDS) is a leader in local initiatives for people with developmental disabilities. The organization is comprised of 56 county boards (including the City of St. Louis), and 8 Related Private Organizations, that provide local services for people with developmental disabilities. MACDDS is dedicated to ensuring quality community supports are available for people with developmental disabilities.
This year we are emphasizing presentations that provide cutting-edge knowledge and innovation, as well as replicable and affordable ideas within the field of developmental disabilities. As the theme of our conference this year suggests, the field of developmental disabilities is at a point of major change, challenge, and choice, but also opportunity. Policy changes on a national level are emphasizing community participation, self-determination, and inclusive services more than ever. Come share what you or your agency is doing to meet these policy changes, and how in the process you are working to better the lives of persons with developmental disabilities. Never presented before? If you or your agency is doing something innovative and creative, we want to hear from you!
