Define: Participants will explore various Person Centered approaches and planning processes to co-create a shared vision of the future and align the supports needed.

What is the CA Gathering?

The CA Gathering is a sanctioned event of the international Learning Community for Person Centered Practices. Attendees are encouraged to share their gifts, skills, talents, and passions as they relate to their role and experience with person centered practices in their service to others. This is so much more than a conference; come hear and learn from self-advocates, family members, provider partners, regional center teams, change agents, and leaders in the field of Person Centered Thinking, and practices. 

Registration information will be sent out July 2017. 

We look forward to learning together!
