2023 VFN Annual Conference Livestream Format Registration 

This registration is for our livestream format 2023 Annual Conference “Inclusion and Well-Being” which will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2023 from 9:00-12:00 p.m. Attendees are invited to register separately for a free public film event with Dan and Samuel Habib. The film event runs from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and is hosted by the UVM Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI).

This year our new Executive Director, Jacqui Kelleher and Vermont Agency of Education guests, Betty Roy and Cassie Santo will start off our day talking about Building Inclusive Systems. They will provide practical tips and strategies and highlight how inclusive systems and practices have positive impacts on the well-being of children, youth and their families and professionals who serve them. We will then welcome our featured presenter, Dr. Joelle van Lent, who will focus on the well-being and resilience of caregivers, families and helping professionals. This presentation will offer fascinating information about how we are impacted in positive ways through caring roles, as well as our risk for negative impact. Participants will learn practical strategies that can be used to buffer impact and increase the resilience of the care provider.

For the afternoon, we will partner with UVM Center on Disability and Community Inclusion when Dan and Samuel Habib will share two films including their new short film “My Disability Roadmap” and discuss how they have tried to build a culture of inclusion in their family, school district, and community, as well as plan for a full adult life as Samuel enters his 20’s. VFN Conference attendees can register for the free film event separately here.

The VFN Conference livestream Zoom webinar format registration fee is $12.00. This fee will cover costs for the presenters and livestream AV/IT support. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the conference. Please note that this conference will not be recorded and must be watched live! The afternoon film event sponsored by CDCI, will be free and open to the public. If you are only interested in the film screening, please do not complete the VFN conference registration.
