On February 25, INARF member organizations, along with the Direct Support Professionals of Indiana, The Arc of Indiana, and INARF and Ability Indiana staff, gathered for INARF Statehouse Day. Members and staff connected with over 50 legislators and staff, providing information about their organizations, services, and individuals they serve.
Representatives from member organizations met with legislators and discussed issues faced by our industry. INARF staff were on hand to familiarize legislators with our association and members, providing an INARF At A Glance handout for legislators to reference. Staff from Ability Indiana promoted their program to legislators. Members also had the opportunity to learn more about the legislative process by attending the morning House of Representatives session.
INARF thanks members who participated in the successful event and encourages members who are interested in participating in INARF’s 2017 Statehouse Day to contact Katy Stafford-Cunningham, Vice President - Public Policy, or Sarah Chestnut, Public Policy Coordinator.
