Le Club Calumet
Augusta, Maine

 

APSE ForumMichael, president of Mark Gold & Associates, has consulted and trained regarding the full inclusion of people with disabilities in our communities and workplaces. His path-breaking work has focused on creative alternatives to the status quo and is grounded in the belief that everyone can work. Additionally, the forum will include presentations on the ADA and employment successes in Maine.

The Employment Advocacy Forum is geared toward people with disabilities, advocates, allies and supporters and is an opportunity to learn more about the value of work and the ways in which we can reduce barriers and create and customize employment opportunities for people with disabilities. This event is an opportunity to learn, be inspired, and re-commit ourselves to the belief that life can be enhanced through employment. This important event is the kick-off of a partnership initiative aimed at recruiting and sustaining a team of employment advocates to educate the public and weigh in on public policy issues in Maine. If you are interested in more information about the forum or regarding the possibility of becoming an employment advocate, please contact: Rick Langley at 1-800-452-1948 v/:y or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
