Last week, the Coleman Institute hosted its 10th Annual Conference. The title of the conference was The Power of Partnerships In Cognitive Disability & Technology.
In conjunction with the Coleman Conference, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), along with the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare and the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals, hosted the 2nd Annual Technology Leadership Summit.
Since these two events were located right here in our neck of the woods, it provided a great opportunity to share the story of our SmartHomes project. And share we did!
Representatives from several organizations attending the conferences took tours of the Bob and Judy SmartHome in Boulder, including folks from Maine-based OHI, Connecticut-based Ability Beyond Disability, New York-based Westchester Arc, and Alliance, located right here in Colorado.
But the SmartHome tours weren’t the only way our SmartHomes were represented at the two conferences. SmartHome PR guy Fred Hobbs presented on Social Media (see the presentation slide show below) and hosted a round table on the subject, and SmartHome guru Greg Wellems hosted a roundtable discussion on business leadership.
It is becoming abundantly clear that more and more organizations are looking to Imagine!’s SmartHomes and SmartSupports projects to serve as blueprints for their own future plans for serving some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. We are happy to share what we know, what we’ve learned, and what we don’t yet know – we think that approach will ultimately serve all of us better!
Good News Friday!
