Thank you for joining us at the Summit Conference 2019.

We explored new and proven paths to excellence in performance management and quality assurance in the state vocational rehabilitation system.

We journeyed together to achieve excellence in providing services to people with disabilities, resulting in quality employment outcomes.

We look forward to continuing our journey next year in Orlando, Florida, on September 16-18th.
