The Oregon Statewide Transition Conference is excited to present this year’s conference theme “The Road to Transition is Always Under Construction”.

This year’s event will highlight the continued learning that professionals gain from each other in the world of transition, with four topic strands of: education, independent living, employment, and well-being.

In addition to an excellent keynote speaker, attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a professional community conversation event that will highlight the strengths, barriers, and solutions of providing transition services in their own communities.
