Maryland’s Employment First Roundtable

Deputy Secretary Bernie Simons (DDA) and Secretary Carol Beatty (MDOD) invite you to a day- long gathering of interested stake holders to refocus Maryland on Employment Outcomes for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

This kick off event will conclude with event participants signing on to committees that will be responsible for creating the MD Employment First Work Plan. It is the goal of DDA to work with and support 9 active work groups focused on specific components of a highly performing Employment First state.

If you would like to be a part of shaping policy, defining best practice, creating a framework for technical assistance and training, creating strategic goals, and setting parameters for how to communicate about Employment First in MD, then this event is for you.

DDA will give each of these targeted committees the resources and information they need to have the Maryland Employment First Work Plan completed for an October 2015 unveiling during National Employment of People with Disabilities Month.

If you have any questions, or would like to request a special accommodation, please contact Karen Lee by email or Ms. Nicole Smith, by email or by phone at (410) 767-5600

When:  Monday July 13, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM EDT
