The Job-Driven Vocational Rehabilitation Technical Assistance Center (JD-VRTAC) and the Vocational Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Demand-Side Strategies (Demand-Side RRTC) will co-host a national conference, Meeting Employer Demand in a Job-Driven Economy: Diversity, Inclusion, and VR's Evolving Role.

The conference will highlight demand-side VR research and job-driven practices from VR agencies across the country. Demand-side strategies and research outcomes can help inform state VR agencies’ procedures and policies around improving business intelligence, serving business and consumers as the dual-customer, meeting industry demands, and using labor market information.

We invite staff from all state VR agencies and partnering organizations, as well as VR researchers, to attend this two-day, in-person conference. 

Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRCs) who attend will be eligible to receive CRC credits.
