2023-2027 Draft Strategic Plan In-Person Forums

2023-2027 Draft Strategic Plan In-Person Forums

Dear Colleagues,

I hope all of you are aware that on May 27, 2022, OPWDD released its 2023-2027 Draft Strategic Plan for review and comment.

Our first regional in-person forum will be held in Plattsburgh, NY on June 22, 2022.

I am excited to be continuing our outreach to all of you to hear what you think of the 2023-2027 Draft Strategic Plan and continue working to finalize this important document that will guide us forward together. The entire schedule of the in-person forums is below. We are finalizing times and locations for each forum, and we will provide that information as soon as it is available. I hope you will consider joining one of the forums in your area, either to simply listen or to speak. Pre-registration is not required, but is strongly encouraged, especially if you want to request any assistance such as language interpretation for the event.

The forums are open to everyone. I know they will be a good opportunity for me and other OPWDD staff to meet many of you in person and to discuss your thoughts on the 2023-2027 Draft Strategic Plan. I look forward to seeing you at one of these events.
