Join your colleagues to advance the profession of rehabilitation counseling!

VR practitioners, academics, researchers, administrators, and policymakers will convene at this hybrid conference to share contemporary research, issues, and future needs to advance the profession of rehabilitation counseling.

TACQE is hosting this conference to support vocational rehabilitation professionals to upgrade and increase their competencies, skills, and knowledge. Through information-sharing and collaboration, we seek to increase the capacity of State VR agencies and their affiliates to implement and sustain strategies and practices that support individuals with disabilities to achieve quality employment and career advancement.
