VISIONS 2020 sponsored by Florida Division on Career Development and Transition (FLDCDT)
To our Florida DCDT members, conference participants, presenters, vendors, scholarship recipients and all other hard working professionals who serve the transition needs of our youth with unique abilities, after significant deliberation, the FLDCDT Board recently voted to postpone the 2020 VISIONS Conference scheduled for April 15-17, in Orlando, Florida. The virus has been an unfortunate surprise to us all and for the good of everyone involved, it was necessary to move the conference to the Fall. We don’t yet have an exact date but if you were already registered, we will be sending you a Save the Date in the near future. You can also check out our website at FloridaDCDT.org for the latest updates.
