Our 2024 Annual Conference theme, Level Up, challenges us to reach for new heights to show what’s possible when believe in the promise of inclusion and recognizes the many ways in which we’ve risen to unforseen challenges. As Kentucky providers navigate the ever-changing landscape of community-based services, it’s time to reach higher, dream bigger, and be bolder as we work to Level Up community-based supports.  

Join us in Louisville for the premiere opportunity to gather with Kentucky community-based service providers to celebrate our accomplishments,  tackle some of today’s most pressing challenges, and collectively Level Up as provider community .
