Keynote PresentaƟon: Dale DiLeo, President of Training Resource Network Tired of the same old conference formats? Tired of people talking at you? Tired of going to one predictable session followed by another? We are too! What if you could design your own conference agenda? What would it look like? What would the topics be that are of most interest to you? MN APSE is proposing a radical departure from the status quo of conferences. AŌer all, we’’re looking to change the status quo of employment for people with disabiliƟes. MN APSE wants create a conference that is responsive to the needs of the parƟcipants, pushes the envelope of ordinary conferences, and conƟnues to build a community of people who are dedicated to making employment the rst and preferred outcome for people who have disabiliƟes. Following a keynote address, conference aƩendees will engage in a community conversaƟon. Breakout sessions will focus on the top 4-5 topics generated from the conversaƟons. Dale DiLeo and content experts gathered by MN APSE will conduct workshops or addiƟonal conversaƟons based upon the input of the audience. This event is sponsored in part by the MN Governor’’s Council on Developmental DisabiliƟes.
