APRIL 2020 Workshop Proposal 26th Annual Conference

Please submit your workshop proposal for the 26th Annual APRIL Conference below by August 14th, 2020.  We will accept workshop proposals highlighting your emerging and best practices for serving people with disabilities in your communities and managing your IL organization.  We will have 1 hour slots available. Please note that in light of COVID-19, the APRIL Conference will move to a virtual event. We will miss seeing all of your smiling faces in person, and want to ensure everyone stays healthy until we see each other next year.  In moving online, we will be also slightly modifying our schedule to October 12-16, 2020.  We will make sure to post changes and announcements around our schedule and events as they unfold.  Thank you for being flexible and continuing to support the APRIL Conference. 

Topics of interest that we will prioritize include:
  • creative and emerging practices for serving your RURAL locations
  • professional development for front line staff (managing volunteers, building and sustaining programs, IL consumer documentation, IL Skills training facilitation tips, implementing Youth services,  implementing peer support programs, implementing nursing home transition programs, social media outreach, disability specific laws and regulations, community organizing and outreach tools....)
  • SILC/Boards presentation and Youth Consumer presentations
  • Institution Transition
