2017 Independent Living Conference: Leading the Charge
June 12th, 2017 • Sacramento, CA
The California Foundation for Independent Living Centers is excited to announce its first statewide Independent Living: Leading the Charge Conference. Join us at the Sacramento Convention Center on June 12, 2017. This gathering is intended to bring together Independent Living Center staff, boards and volunteers from across California and the western region to learn and share best practices related to Independent Living Center core services, innovations and partnerships.
Do you have expertise in a core service area of Independent Living? Are you doing something cool in your community that you think other ILCs can do too? Are you making things happen through partnerships that other ILCs can too? SHARE what you are doing at the CFILC IL Conference!
We like to thank Molina Healthcare for helping to sponsor the 2017 Independent Living Conference.
