California Gathering for Person Centered Practices

The California Gathering is an annual sanctioned event of the Learning Community of Person Centered Practices. Each year TCRC hosts two exciting days of Person Centered Thinking and Planning that help our community continue to develop a strong foundation to promote positive partnerships in support of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families.


California Gathering 2019, October 22 & 23.

Dynamic Discovery
Cultivating a community of innovation that empowers people to live the lives they’ve imagined.

Participants will be inspired to re-imagine how Person Centered practices can support people and facilitate the change that creates meaningful lives in their community.This year’s gathering is about bringing our community together to explore new ideas and test our assumptions. We want to invite attendees to think out of the box and re-envision what is possible. We are excited to share innovative approaches and resources for Person Centered planning that honor a person’s unique hopes, dreams, gifts, skills and personal history.

Registration opens June 30, 2019. Sign up to be notified.

NEW LOCATION! Santa Ynez Marriott in Buellton.
