The "I Am Determined" conference held in beautiful Cape San Blas, FL at Billy Joe Rish State Park was an unforgettable experience for all who attended. Thank you to all the generous donors who contributed through the GoFundMe campaign, so the group could travel to the conference. In addition, we would like to thank Tim and Lara Boyd, of the Mustard Seed Bistro in Plantation, for their generous support.

Those who attended the conference joined with their peers from other Arc’s around the State of Florida. The two-day “I Am Determined” conference included breakout sessions on self-determination led by facilitators Jonathan Martinis, Senior Director for Law and Policy for The Burton Blatt Institute of Syracuse University, and Jessalyn Gustin, Program Director at Upper Valley Services in Bradford, Vermont. Attendees also met with representative from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. They enjoyed a bonfire on the beach and a dance.
