Synergy is much more than a training's a side by side experience for people receiving services and those working in the DD system! To keep us all as safe as possible and to maintain the "synergy" that has emerged in the past, we have decided to focus all efforts on the 2021 Synergy celebration of being together again and to cancel the 2020 conference being planned for October 7-9. If you made a hotel reservation, you are responsible for cancelling your hotel room.
