Learning & Networking

Learning and Networking

The regular networking sessions offer so much more than simply meeting others who work in the same field. Stimulating conversation occurs between people who share the same goals of improving accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities, and increased independence through meaningful employment. Our regular networking meetings bring together individuals who work for local employment service providers, schools, colleges, disability services organizations, and other bodies. At these meetings, presentations educate attendees regarding disabilities, programs, government initiatives, and other services. Participants also have opportunities for collaboration, networking, and information sharing. These meetings are held in Abbotsford.

The BC Career Development Association has approved Focus Disability Network Society meetings and conferences for Continuing Education Credits. These credits are essential for certification and recertification as a Certified Career Development Professional.

Employment Service Centres have a requirement to attend educational sessions and network with other Employment support agencies. Attendance at Focus Disability Network Society events fulfills this criteria, and builds capacity within the participating organizations.

Conferences are held annually, with locations ranging between the Fraser Valley Abbotsford and the Lower Mainland.
They provide detailed information regarding issues related to disability and employment.
