The Arc Leadership Institute
July 23, 2018 - July 26, 2018
Each year The Arc and NCE hold a two-and-a-half-day Summer Leadership Institute for senior leaders and staff from across the disability and public service sector. The Summer Leadership Institute strives to provide attendees with engaging dialogue and discussion, as well as educational materials that will help individuals develop and hone their professional skills. Our goal is for all of us to work better and smarter towards our shared purpose – ensuring people with intellectual and development disabilities achieve their full civil and human rights and are fully included in their communities.
This year our theme is: Revolution, Innovation and Leadership: Practical Tips for Guiding Your Agency. While systems vary across the country, today’s challenges faced by people with I/DD and their families are universal: future planning, community integration, education, housing, employment, self-determination, access to justice, advocacy, empowerment of self-advocates, health disparities, and solving the DSP crisis, to name a few. The Arc has long stood at the forefront of advocacy for the human rights of people with I/DD and our chapters work diligently to address these challenges, approaching them as opportunities to effectively meet the needs of a diverse, ever-changing, I/DD community. Join us in Philadelphia, a historical city associated with revolution, as we discuss how to continue our evolution as service providers and the innovations and leadership required to advocate and serve people with I/DD and their families. It’s time for a revolution! It’s time for change!
