The conference is sponsored by the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD), In Control Wisconsin, and People First Wisconsin.

On Monday, Oct. 29 dynamic pre-conference sessions in the afternoon will be followed by the Art Night Kick-Off. During the Kick-Off, attendees can create their own art and participate in the Auction and Basket Raffle. There will also be an Artist Exhibit during the Kick-Off and artists with disabilities will have the opportunity to display and sell their work.

Days 1 and 2 of the conference – Tuesday, Oct. 30 and Wednesday, Oct. 31 – will feature powerful keynote presentations from entertainer Bob Kann, self-advocate and poet Aliza Claire Bible, and DHS Deputy Administrator Beth Wroblewski. On Tuesday night, singer/songwriter Peter Leidy will emcee the Talent Showcase and everyone is invited to share their talents!

As always, the conference will feature many sessions that will provide participants with excellent learning opportunities. Learn more about the conference.

There are also opportunities to get involved through conference sponsorship or by having an exhibit table.
