2017 ANCOR Leadership Summit

September 18, 2017 to September 19, 2017

Washington, District of Columbia

2017 Leadership Summit LogoThis year has presented many new changes from  a new presidential administration, new Congress, new gubernatorial class, and changing state legislatures. Amongst all of these significant political shifts, we have seen the link between federal, state, and local policy seem to grow ever deeper.

Disability service providers are significantly impacted by how closely federal and state issues are connected. Almost a quarter of the federal budget goes to federal and state programs run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Medicaid funding, in particular, represents almost 30% of most state budgets. With all federal and state eyes on Congress’ Medicaid reform efforts this year and with President Trump’s administration focusing on providing policies that advance state flexibility, there is no greater time to explore how to connect how federal and state policy interact.

Join us at this year’s Leadership Summit to talk to key Democratic and Republican strategists on navigating and uplifting disability services in this new environment, learn how state policies can oftentimes be the result of federal policies, get your fill of key data to be active in national and local policy arenas, and learn about model approaches to create change for disability providers in your state. The Leadership Summit will include a Congressional briefing on innovation and technology and a Hill Day to ensure your members of Congress hear your voice!
