KEEP MOVING FORWARD: Freedom, Choice, Change
November 9-11, 2015
Kalahari Convention Center
Advocates were faced with a lot changes in 2015. While it wasn’t always easy, it was a good reminder that we are strong and proud advocates! We in Wisconsin share common values of self-determination and self-direction. These are not programs or services, they are a set of principles we all hold important for our freedom and the right to make decisions for ourselves. We find strength in the lessons we’ve learned, create opportunities for more growth and find hope for the future within ourselves, our circle of supports and our communities.
Reunite with friends and colleagues, and keep moving forward with goals. If you have never been to the conference, welcome to our community! Be ready to learn, laugh and leave feeling re-energized!
