Member Meetings

Several times each year, members receive an invitation to participate in various meetings. These cover a variety of topics that are of interest to those with Down syndrome and their caregivers. Whether it is an educational workshop, an advocacy and legislation meeting, a social gathering, or any host of other topics, you are sure to be informed and hopefully inspired. Most of these meetings are provided free or at a significantly reduced cost to MVDSA members. (Not a member? Click HERE)
