Last Friday, I was able to spend some time with some other folks in the KC area to acknowledge and pay respects to Jim Johnson who is retiring at Center for Developmentally Disabled in the KC Metro.  Jim has spent the last 30 years in leadership at CDD and he has provided to both his agency and many other agencies along the way insight and mentoring.  His agency was one of the first agencies to start using Therap in KC and since then the agency continues to utilize the software effectively in providing quality supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. Jim has been many things to many people as he has negotiated the many changes and nuances that are so very abundant in the I/DD field.  His leadership and insight will be missed and yet I am happy for him and his wife who may get to enjoy traveling even more which I know they are both excited about the opportunity.  Jim, I wish you nothing but the best!
