For our members. By our members.

It is a little bit magic when you talk with someone who has the perfect solution to the problem you have been struggling with or shares a great idea you want to try. DSAIA’s new Member 2 Member webinars will give you the chance to hear what’s happening in Down syndrome associations all over the country. Each informal discussion will last about one hour and be hosted by a DSAIA member with an idea, solution, or strategy. There will be a brief presenation and lots of time for discussion.

We know!  Understanding how and why data can shape your organization is an issue so many Down syndrome associations struggle with. Join Sarah Curfman, the Executive Director of Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota (DSAMn) for a really practical look at  data. Through a case study format, learn from the experience of DSAMn and their journey to become a more data-driven organization...on a budget.
