Each of the 8 County-Wide Service Planning Areas has a team of local leaders working together from every level of government, along with a variety of direct service providers, and individuals representing a diverse pool of affinity groups designing an experience unique to the needs of their respective communities. The event will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the weekend of October 4, 5, 6.
