ARRM Leadership Conference

The ARRM Leadership Conference brings together the leaders of ARRM member organizations for a three-day working conference to address 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.

2017 Conference: Celebrating Our Past, Owning Our Future

This year’s Leadership Conference brings together the current and future leaders of Minnesota’s disability services industry to build a vision for the future that not only sustains the support system for people with disabilities, but propels it to reach new heights.

Facing conditions that could easily erase nearly 50 years of progress ARRM members have worked so hard to achieve, 2017 Leadership Conference attendees will draw inspiration from the past and boldness from the aspirations of the people they serve to help launch a new era of opportunity for people with disabilities.

From the first community-based services in the 1970's and 80's, to today's person-centered care, ARRM members have been leading the way for nearly four decades.

2017 Conference Highlights

This year’s conference will be packed with both educational content and opportunities for members to directly shape the strategic focus of ARRM, not to mention the incredible environment beautiful Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge provides.

Timely Education

Come early for a first ever pre-conference session with the latest training on DWRS and the Attestation Process with ARRM’s Barb Turner. During the first day of the conference, state and national representatives give a look back on the most recent policy landscapes, while later advocates prep members for what people with disabilities are seeking in the coming years.
