Living Forums

NCD held its first "Living" forum in Portland, OR. The forum involves representatives from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, and Nevada.

Due to the limitation of space, all regional forums are by invitation only. However, representation of self-advocates, family members, community allies, State government representatives, non-profit organizations, providers, and federal government partners is a top priority. Information shared at the forums will be posted on the NCD website after each forum.
