We all know how important it is to continue growing and learning. It’s just as important for the Gallagher staff as it is for the people they support. That’s why four members of our leadership team attended a week-long, intensive leadership development program sponsored by the Developmental Disabilities Administration and the National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities at the University of Delaware.

The program, offered through the Maryland Leadership Institute, provided opportunities to learn from each other and leading experts in the field on how to embrace the shift to individualized, responsive supports for people with disabilities.
