A Successful Conference in the Books

The Statewide Independent Living Conference was a success, and the G.O. theme was a fun twist. This conference was held at the Clearwater River Casino in Lewiston, in partnership with the Nimiipuu Tribe and our other Idaho CIL’s, LIFE and LINC.

Workshops included independent living skills like finding peer support groups, finding employment in the electronic age, Benefits Planning and ABLE accounts and even cooking.

Since the focus was on outdoor recreation, there were a lot of workshops on that. Photography, camping hacks, adaptive movement and exercise classes, even how to stay safe in an emergency when traveling. All of this is to empower those who came to get out and do more in the out of doors. It’s proven to be a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally.

And the best part? Learning more about the Nimiipuu culture. They performed welcome and closing dances in full tribal regalia. We hope you will join us for the next statewide Independent Living Conference!
