NYSRA and NYATEP are delighted to invite you to a one-day summit to support the connection, coordination and collaboration of the disability-serving community and the workforce system.

This event, sponsored by the NYS Rehabilitation Association (NYSRA) and NY Association of Training and Employment Professionals (NYATEP) will be held on Monday, December 7, 2015 from 9:30AM-3:00PM at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany

Highlighted Presentations Include:

An Environment for Collaboration - How Federal, State and Local Landscapes are Changing

This forum will provide an overview of the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act and implications in the law that effect both the workforce development and disbaility-serving community. Opportunity will be provided for a question and answer discussion.

Effective Strategies in Transitioning Individuals with Disabilities into Workforce

Workforce development professionals will be joined by their colleagues who serve individuals with disabilities to discuss and share innovative strategies and programs that are currently involved with that focus on better serving individuals with disabilities in the WIOA system.

Facilitated Round Table Discussion: Creating Connections!

Attendees will engage in a facilitated discussion:

  • reflecting on what you've heard during the morning sessions; 
  • strategizing how you plan to move forward locally with the implementation of WIOA and development of partnerships; and 
  • identifying what gaps need to be addressed to be successful!


As WIOA implementation is underway, this is a perfect opportunity to informally and formally make these connections to better serve your communities. Register today for this timely event!
