DISABILITY NETWORK CONVENINGS Lutheran Services in America-Disability Network Winter Meeting 2023

  • January 25, 2023 - January 27, 2023

Please join us January 25–27 at The Wigwam near Phoenix for the Lutheran Services in America-Disability Network Winter Meeting 2023. It’s a great opportunity to innovate, collaborate and strategize with your peer organizations about the important work you do to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead their best lives.

We’ll hear from key Congressional representatives, dive into how we can most effectively advocate together and engage with outside experts and our own peers for inspiration and action steps on innovations in providing services and strategies to thrive in our current environment.

If you have any questions, please contact Bill Kallestad, Director of Public Policy and Advocacy, Lutheran Services in America-Disability Network.



Save your spot for the meeting (free of charge) and optional Thursday night group dinner ($50).

Note: Meeting registration ends January 13, 2023 but don’t delay, sign up today.
