Building inclusive communities for people requires real effort and “presence.”  From Presence to Citizenship is a conference that unites people involved in the developmental services sector to share thought leadership, best practices and success stories.  Over the past four years, approximately 300 executive directors, managers and leaders with an interest using community as a first resort for services and supports attend the annual learning exchange.

This annual event features nationally and internationally recognized speakers, thought-provoking breakout sessions and interactive panel discussions that feature champions of transformation. This year’s fourth annual From Presence to Citizenship conference Community: Mine – Yours – Ours will carry on from last year’s theme of “people driving change” as we shift to focusing on the importance of community; building healthy communities and creating community connections and partnerships.  Participants will explore ways to support a welcoming and inclusive society, learn how to bring powerful conversations into your community and shift your agency’s thinking about the nature of engagement.

The Learning Exchange takes place on March 5th and 6th, 2020. There will also be pre-event social networking on Wednesday, March 4th at 7:00pm for those that arrive early where sector leaders will be discussing building your organization’s toolbox.

The Early Bird Price is $295 until January 17th, 2020. The registration price is $350 after January 17th, 2020.
