Applied Self-Direction hosts the only national conference dedicated to self-direction. The National Self-Direction Conference brings together state and federal government, managed care organizations, Financial Management Services entities, people and families who self-direct, support brokers, and other key stakeholders from across the country to collaborate on one goal: advancing self-direction.
We offer the National Self-Direction Conference as an in-person event every other year. Our next in-person National Self-Direction Conference will be held on March 14-15, 2024 at the Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, Maryland. With interest in self-direction at an all-time high, we have begun to offer a virtual conference series during the in-person “off-year” to reach a broader audience.
We know what you’re thinking: Not another virtual conference! But the 2023 Self-Direction Conference: Virtual Series is not your average virtual conference. We are not trying to recreate our traditional conference in a virtual setting. There are many elements of an in-person conference—networking, exhibit booths, a full day of sessions—that just don’t work on a virtual platform.
Sessions will be offered twice a week throughout March and April from 2-3 PM (EST). By scheduling our sessions over time, you can participate without blocking-off extended time on your calendar or spending your whole day in front of the computer.
Our virtual series will offer the same caliber of sessions as our in-person conference with a variety of speakers including federal agencies, state programs, individuals who self-direct, and other experts in the field. In fact, our virtual series sessions include an even wider array of speakers given the flexible scheduling and ease of presenting virtually. And our favorite part- thanks to our generous sponsors, the 2023 Self-Direction Conference: Virtual Series is FREE to attend!
