Richard and I had a great time in Albany, NY with the folks from NYSACRA.

We have a whole bunch of exciting plans around games, conferences, and activities for DSPs and IT folks.

A couple of other interesting tidbits we talked about (excerpts taken from the NYSACRA website:)

1. NYSACRA was recently informed by the National Alliance of Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) and the Research and Training Center on Community Living at the University of Minnesota that we have been awarded the 2007 Moving Mountains Award for our comprehensive approach to improving and developing direct support workforce strategies.

2. NYSACRAAgency IT Directors and CFO’s took a short survey that was developed by the NYSACRA Information Technology Committee to get some gauge of where voluntary providers are regarding their use of technology. To date we have received over 87 survey responses. Results of the survey are available on the www.nysacra.org website or at this link: http://www.nysacra.org/nysacra/pdf/TechSurveySumma ry07.pdf.
