2010 Training

In light of the continuing economic downturn, restrictions on travel and funding have made it difficult for many disability services providers to obtain professional development training this year.  As a result, AHEAD NR purchased two AHEAD audio conference sessions and provided them to its members as a complimentary membership benefit.
