Nonprofit professionals from 23 agencies that serve children and adults with developmental disabilities came together for an exciting morning of information, dialogue and networking. We explored Storytelling - a compelling way to share the struggles an organization faces and as well as the solutions to overcome those problems. The morning began with a presentation by Scott Whitehair, Story Lab Chicago. Click here for notes from his session.
