With the mid-term elections just around the corner, the INARF PAC is gearing up for its annual fundraising campaign. Building on last year's success, the INARF PAC Board is hoping to raise $14,000 in 2014.
To celebrate our 40th anniversary, our staff have asked members and persons from the community to share their experience with INARF. If you would like to share your experience, please contact Harley Ehrman.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) will soon have a new leader, as Dr. John Wernert takes over as Secretary on July 21st. Debra Minott, who has held the position since January of 2013, will be transitioning out of her role on July 5th. Former FSSA Secretary Micheal Gargano will be acting Secretary during the transition. This change is coming at a critical time for FSSA, as the Pence administration attempts to expand the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP). INARF and its Government Relations team are working on your behalf to continue to advance several initiatives in the midst of this transition.

Re: Quarterly Provider Meeting Agenda and Registration
Date: June 25, 2014
The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) invites DDRS providers to attend the Quarterly Provider Meeting on July 16, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Indiana Government Center South Auditorium. This meeting will be conducted somewhat differently from past meetings as DDRS would like to utilize this forum to gain feedback from providers on new initiatives and existing projects. DDRS is asking that all providers attend this meeting in person in order to work in small facilitated groups to ensure meaningful discussion. Due to the format of this meeting a webinar option will not be offered this quarter.
