About the conference:
The ARRM Leadership Conference brings together the leaders of ARRM member organizations for a three-day working conference to address the key issues of the day for our industry. Attendees learn from state and national experts, hear updates on policy and regulations from ARRM staff as well as state and federal officials, and engage with peers to support the implementation of best practices across all our organizations.
About the 2016 Conference: Building a Stronger Person-Centered Workforce
The 2016 ARRM Leadership Conference focused on addressing the growing workforce problem for the disabilities service sector, working to develop short- and long-term solutions that ARRM will work with members and public policy officials to implement over the coming year. This included a close exploration of how creating a person-centered culture is not only beneficial for the people our members serve, but can have positive impacts on staff morale, retention and growth. In addition to learning many new strategies for implementing these solutions, conference attendees collaborated in generating dozens of suggestions for simple and straightforward strategies and tactics that have brought positive workforce outcomes to members who have established them.

We also celebrated the career of retired ARRM CEO Bruce Nelson. It was a wonderful sendoff for our leader of 21 years.
