About Us

We are so happy to welcome you to the first in-person I/DD Case Management Conference since 2019! A lot has happened since we last got to all come together and connect.

This year brings a lot of new things to try and memories to make! Our two days will be filled with learning, engagement, and making connections that last all year.

Here are a few special highlights of this year’s conference:

  • New location! We are in Eugene at the University of Oregon for the first time, sessions in the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) and Straub Hall next door
  • Dreading a single menu lunch buffet? Worry no more! This year’s lunches will be at the PNW Cafe at Unthank Hall, an all-you-care-to-eat style food court featuring local restaurants offering many options to meet diverse food needs and preferences
  • You won’t be bored - we have more than 55 presentations to choose from across a wide range of topics, including many led by self-advocates, families, and more
  • DJ Lamar will have you dancing during our early evening reception on Aug. 23rd with hors d'oeuvres and cash bar - come and unwind after a full day of learning
  • Sometimes, events can get overwhelming! With this in mind, we will have a room in the EMU dedicated to sensory supports to help folks decompress during the conference
  • Opportunities to host conversations if you want to
  • We invite you to visit with many organizations who are hosting exhibitor tables - collect some swag and find resources to help you in your work or life
  • Try your luck with raffle prizes in our closing session, donated by Therap!

… and much more!

We are excited to welcome everyone on August 23rd and 24th to connect, share, and learn together.

See you in Eugene!
