Attending the Gathering at the Grove can be a really inspiring and energizing experience!  Here are testimonials from some people who were there last year:

“It was a great experience – nice to see all the advocates and hear success stories!”

  • Lindsay Nemetz, SSA – Stark County Board of DD


“The best part of last year’s Gathering was hearing from people who use services.  Their leadership, self-advocacy, and guidance inspires me to keep learning!”

  • Tara Nicodemus, Director of Quality – MEORC


“Last year at the Gathering at the Grove, I gained a lot of information and perspective.  I was able to connect with people from other parts of the state to get valuable information on ways to assist the people that I work with to reach goals, and to guide teams to be more person-centered.  Spending time hearing the stories of people that have seen success, and being able to ask questions of the team was amazing.  I came back to the office revived and ready to take on person-centered planning!”
