All PAR members are welcome. PAR General Membership meetings are important times to learn, network and problem-solve with your colleagues. They are also opportunities to receive up-to-the-minute updates and to discuss issues and activities that are not included in PAR Mails.
Ted Dallas, Secretary of the Department of Human Services (DHS), will be presenting. There will be ample opportunity for Q & A and for PAR members to help the Secretary understand more about the challenges and opportunities you see as you work to provide quality supports for people.
Come this fall we expect the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) to issue draft Chapter 6100 regulations and to start the formal regulatory process. PAR members will hear from David Sumner, Executive Director of the IRRC, about the opportunities that will be available for comments and recommendations on Chapter 6100 through the IRRC's regulatory review process.
This is an important seminar for all members to attend. Consider bringing staff who will be responsible for putting your comments and recommendations together and for testifying. Services are profoundly impacted by regulations that stay in place often for decades. PAR invites you to learn how to be more effective in the regulatory process. Positive change does not come about on its own. You can and do make a difference!
