CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership

2017 CQL Conference:

Blueprint For Person-Centered Practices

There have been quality conferences throughout the years, introducing self-advocates and provider agencies to the cutting-edge philosophies surrounding human services. They have laid out the important issues involving supports, funding, independence and advocacy. They have described the ideologies of rights and respect, or laid out the concepts of community inclusion. This conference is different.

The 2017 CQL Conference: Blueprint For Person-Centered Practices, puts all those ideas into action. CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership will be bringing together the experts spanning diverse spheres of human services, not only in principle, but in practice. Attendees will enter with aspirations of transformation, and leave with specific steps to help individual lives, whole organizations and entire systems, evolve.
