Our Seventeenth Annual Conference for Direct Service Professionals will be held on Friday, April 12, 2019. We are particularly proud of this event as it serves to enhance the status, recognition, and professionalism of those who provide direct services and supports for the people whom our organizations serve.

For over a decade, our conference has celebrated the critical role of Direct Service Professionals who provide services and supports to adults and/or children with mental health conditions, intellectual disabilities, or chemical dependency.

The success of our conference is largely due to the high caliber of speakers who generously share their expertise for the benefit of Direct Service Professionals. Throughout the day, we host 30 lively, engaging and thought provoking workshops.

Keynote Speaker

Frank Pastizzo – Warm Up The Workplace

Frank Pastizzo’s background includes working side-by-side with doctors in air force emergency rooms, teaching high school English and Drama in England, touring as a stand-up comedian and professional actor in Europe and the U.S., and working as a health care administrator and marketing executive for various agencies in New York. Through an eclectic mix of music, comedy and poignant story telling from his diverse background, Frank Pastizzo forges a connection with his audiences. Seeing the workplace as an extension of our lives where we spend the majority of our time, Frank inspires us to bring the qualities we hold most ideal in our family lives, into our schools, businesses and organizations. Through the modeling and practice of his C.H.E.R.I.S.H., we are able to attain an environment where we feel a sense of loyalty and trust, and it shows. The result is an establishment where we feel a sense of belonging, direction, and comfort.
