About the training

The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) and the Designated State Entity (DSE) must work together. Don’t take our word for it – it’s the law! Whether you believe there is room for improvement or you feel as though you are at a total impasse, this webinar is designed to clarify what the law says about the roles and responsibilities of the SILCs and DSEs, along with practical examples of how you can each improve your relationship.

Our presenters will share real-world examples of how they built a strong, collaborative relationship after a history of unproductive efforts.  

SILCs are strongly encouraged to forward this announcement to their DSE with an invitation to attend. This presentation includes content for both SILCs and DSEs, and we encourage you all to participate together. Join this important and timely webinar on August 29, 2019 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
