A Message from ACRC
It’s 2022 and it’s time to get back together! We have all experienced the side effects of social isolation, we have felt the missed opportunities to be together. I welcome each and every one of you to ACRC’s 66th Annual Conference. I am thrilled to be unveiling the full lineup for our 2022 annual conference, an event with more anticipation than I can ever recall, as this will be an opportunity for us to gather in one place, learning together, growing together, and reveling in the shared experiences only togetherness can bring. I know not everyone will be able to make the journey, but you will be connected both virtually and in our thoughts until the time is right.
Here in 2022 we are uplifting the voices of lived experience. Before our conference even begins, we welcome the voices of lived experience in both our Family Partners Brainstorming session and our Restraint Elimination Preconference. Please note the focus of QUALITY at this event. It is, and always has been, what unites us around the ACRC table. It’s been our mission for over 60 years and it’s more pertinent now than ever. Every session you encounter will bring QUALITY to the forefront. It’s your opportunity to engagewith fellow providers who are, likewise, insisting on QUALITY.
You’ll see QUALITY woven throughout our conference week and throughout our policy,advocacy, research, and program agendas. We welcome you into these crucial conversationsas we commit to quality interventions, supports, and services for children and families.
