We are looking forward to attending the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) Mid-Year Conference!

Leaders in the I/DD field understand collaboration and strategic partnerships are fundamental to improving outcomes in every facet of our field. Deepening ties within our communities allows states to offer services and solutions that help advance the goals of all involved. During times of adversity, this truth becomes even more apparent as the unique gravity of the situation requires innovation, connectivity, and resiliency from our leaders. During our NASDDDS Mid-Year Conference we will explore the unique collaborations which have arisen from the pandemic. How do we identify opportunities to further expand and strengthen our ties within state government, with our communities, and with federal partners? How can each of us extend our reach and impact through collaboration during times which call for unprecedented approaches to I/DD supports?
