Save The Date: Legislative Forum 2012

On Monday, November 19, 2012, please join the King County Board for Developmental Disabilities and the King County Parent Coalition for the 23rd Annual King County Legislators’ Forum to discuss issues of importance in the intellectual and developmental disability system community with members of the Washington State Legislature from King County. It will be held at the DoubleTree Suites at 16500 Southcenter Parkway in Tukwila. This is the largest gathering of our Developmental Disabilities community in our county each year.

In 2011, there were 33 Legislators, elected officials and Congressional staff who attended, as well as over 600 community members.

Speakers will include self-advocates, family members and community members from throughout King County. Families often contact their legislators and encourage them to attend. Interpreters are provided at the event to make it possible for people from diverse communities to attend and participate. If you need an interpreter, contact Michaelle Monday at 206-263-9055 or TTY Relay 711 by Friday, November 9th.

The following documents contain more information on the Forum, the legislative agenda, and the roster of legislators:
