News from LINC
By Jen Grushdale
Mark your calendars for September 13- 14, 2023! Registration is opening soon! The folks at LINC are busy creating a two- day experience for folks with disabilities from across Idaho to learn more about independent living, develop friendships, come together to do systems advocacy and more! Plus a fun evening mixer!
Our day-one keynote speaker is Josiah Sullivan, a native Idahoan, motivational speaker and blogger “Overcoming speed bumps – Accept, Smile and Grow”. He shares his experiences as a person with a disability. He uses his sense of humor, and his dog “Sabrina” to engage with the audience. This conference will have workshops designed to teach you how to live your life on your terms, all while building a network of friends and advocates.
Early registration begins July 10 ($50), registration August 7 ($65) and registration closes August 23. This conference was designed for folks 15 years and older with the desire to grow. Obviously, service animals and support staff are welcome to join you.
Want to come but not sure how to make it happen? Contact your local center for independent living to develop a plan and locate resources to get you there! We are here to help you make this happen.
