WHAT: “Building Pathways to Empowerment: Mapping a New Course” presented by The Arc of Indiana
WHEN: Tuesday, November 9
WHERE: Ritz Charles, 12156 North Meridian Street, Carmel Indiana
Throughout 2010 The Arc of Indiana’s Building Pathways to Empowerment campaign has focused on taking a fresh look at Indiana’s system of programs and services for people with developmental disabilities and their families. National leaders in the field of disabilities, the Big Minds Group, came together to develop a new vision for Indiana’s system of programs and services. Their work is being refined by a team of Hoosier leaders, parents, providers and self‐advocates — the Indiana Response Team — to provide a roadmap for the future.
The November 9th conference will initiate the next phase of the Pathways campaign, Mapping a New Course for people with developmental disabilities and their families. Be the first to hear The Arc’s proactive plan, and learn how we can work together to build a new and innovative system ‐ a system that can provide what people want and need, both now and beyond these difficult economic times. It will be an exciting and informative day that we want you to be part of!
Appreciation Luncheon: Conference registration includes our Annual Appreciation Luncheon, where we will celebrate outstanding individuals, businesses and organizations whose good works are making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families throughout Indiana. And you will not want to miss our keynote speakers, Indiana political leaders Kipper Tew and Mike McDaniel, who will share where the road beyond the 2010 elections may take us, based on election results just one week prior to the conference.
Annual Meeting and Board Meeting: The Arc of Indiana’s Annual Business Meeting and first meeting of the 2010‐2011 Board of Directors will close out the day.
