2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

The presentation will include real examples of best practices from organizations currently at the cutting edge of full inclusion on board of directors, governmental bodies, and decision-making entities. The focus of the presentation will be identifying and understanding the effective actions organizations are currently using to effectively include self-advocates in policy-making bodies. Handouts of actual policies, by-laws, and materials currently being used by best practice organizations will be shared. Participants will learn about and use the newly developed self-assessment tool for successfully including self-advocates on policy-making bodies.
