MASWM conference Targets Key Workshop Issues

The MASWM Spring Conference April 26-28 was a major success, with over 80 workshop representatives attending two days of information-rich presentations. 

Even with a packed agenda focused on workshops, the greatest benefit of the event may have been numerous opportunities for networking by workshop staff members who shared their ideas for solving problems and more.

On March 10th, 2020 Sunset Hills mayor Patricia Fribis declared March 2020 "Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month" and presented both Lafayette Industries and Heartland Industries with proclamations honoring them for their work employing over 570 adults with Developmental Disabilities.
