Announcing the 2018 RTR Workshop at Semiahmoo Resort!

The Recruit, Train, and Retain Series is a workshop series that started in 2012 and was designed to assist managers and direct service staff to build and keep happy and lasting teams. For those who have not joined us for one of these events in the past, this event combines training from leaders in the field with interactive dialogue to create a time to connect, brainstorm, and network with others in the supported employment field about how to find (and keep) a dynamic and high performing team that is able to further the mission of employment for all. 

Attendees are typically program managers, senior employment consultants and emerging leaders (employment specialists) within adult service agencies.
