NCIL Pre-Conference Presents… ILA: Where We Are & Where We Are Going

Sunday, July 26, 2015, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Don’t Miss Out!

Now that the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has been passed and the Independent Living program has moved from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to the Administration for Community Living (ACL), many of you may be asking “Well that’s nice, but how does this affect me and my organization? Is there anyone who can help me understand what is going on and when to implement the changes in WIOA? Is ACL aware of the confusion and misinformation that state entities have regarding the rules and regulations?” If you have been asking these questions, then this session is for you!

Generation ADA: Rise Up! 2015 Annual Conference on Independent Living (Image: red power fist outlined by a black circle)The session will start with an overview of changes to the Independent Living program contained within WIOA, and will update on progress related to the transfer of the program and NCIL’s work on developing recommendations for rules and regulations.

Breaking News!

Kathy Greenlee, Administrator of ACL; Sharon Lewis, Principal Deputy Administrator of ACL; and Jamie Kendall, Acting Director of the Independent Living Administration (ILA) will join us for this session to answer questions and to listen to feedback from the field about ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ experiences now occurring in states.

We hope to see you all on Sunday, July 26 at 1:00 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt for this most important and informative session!
