Hello Vermont APSE Partners,

Our upcoming Vermont APSE conference on May 14 will be our 10th year.  Our conference committee had been discussing the "traditional" Recognition Ceremony and decided to change things up this year.

For a statewide conference, it can be a difficult process to properly and respectfully recognize the good work that everybody is doing.  We fully encourage people to recognize their employees, employers, and staff on a regional basis if you choose to.  But for the statewide conference this year we chose to recognize your work through a slide show encompassing all the work that everyone does.  Below is the request along with an authorization form.

We thought a change this year would keep with the concept of "normalization" that all our vocational services are based on.

So, please join us in our 10 year celebration with your photos...

In order to produce a complete power point for the APSE Conference in May, we REALLY need your help.

Would each of you please submit a photo that can be used to celebrate the diversity, inclusion and partnerships that are developed by way of your supported employment services?

This power point will take the place of an award ceremony so we definitely want you all to utilize this format as a way to celebrate your supported employees, their co-workers and supervisors. So, because this will actually be the recognition portion of the day, feel free to be as creative as you want!!
