The ANCOR Board of Directors in May declared the week of September 11 as the “2011 Direct Support Professional Recognition Week.” ANCOR is also working with members of Congress to once again pass a national resolution celebrating DSP Recognition Week. This cannot be accomplished without your help! ANCOR has composed a flyer for you to leave behind following meetings with Congressional offices. If you plan to help please contact ANCOR staff Mary Pauline Jones.
Start planning your events now! Let us build upon the DSP Recognition Awards by celebrating 2011 DSP Recognition Week in your agency. In preparation for DSP Recognition Week in September, ANCOR is readying resources to assist members in show casing the work of DSPs in their own communities. Over the summer, ANCOR members will receive template materials, ideas and successes collected from last year’s celebration and some fresh new recommendations to ensure a successful week in 2011.
If you have any questions, contact ANCOR staff Mary Pauline Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) 703-535-7850 ext. 108.
