The ANCOR Annual Conference brings together hundreds of attendees who represent private community providers of services and supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities around the country. Our attendees are executive-level staff, program managers, and Direct Support Professionals who all come together to discuss the impact of national policies and regulations on services; learn how the latest research findings can influence policymaking; and hear how their peers successfully leverage the latest technology or designed an innovative approach to solve a long-standing challenge.
Each year, ANCOR ensures conference attendees have opportunities to …
… Hear thought-provoking keynote addresses, such as those by former U.S. Representative and Mental Health Advocate, Patrick Kennedy; Andrew Solomon, author of “Far from the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity”; and Dan Barry, New York Times journalist and author of “The Boys in the Bunkhouse”.
… Be inspired by the stories of the men and women we honor and celebrate every year with our DSP of the Year Awards celebration and ANCOR Foundation Legacy Leaders recognition.
… Learn about cutting edge products and services that could potentially save your organization tens of thousands of dollars by visiting with our exhibitors and sponsors.
… Connect with the thought-leaders, decision-makers, and frontline staff from hundreds of provider organizations.
In 2017, providers of services and supports for people with disabilities will be contending not only with the ongoing workforce crisis, but will also have to prepare for potential changes from a new President and Administration. So, we are Taking the Helm!
Join ANCOR in San Antonio, Texas from May 1-3, 2017!
