Our annual symposium brings together people who are active in the field of disabilities in a welcoming environment that encourages education, the sharing of ideas, rejuvenation and inspiration. The symposium fosters energy and creativity among service providers, educators, employers, persons with disabilities, families and government agencies. It promotes leadership and workforce development for individuals with disabilities and the people who serve them.

This year's symposium is at the Sioux Falls Convention Center from Sept. 10 through Sept. 12.


The final deadline to register for the symposium is Sept. 8, 2017.
