Last month, Vertex attended the ARRM Forward Annual Conference on July 25th and 26th, 2023, at the Mystic Lake Center in Prior Lake, Minnesota, to gain insights and knowledge relevant to the industry. Our team was very impressed by the conference offerings, which included keynote speaker sessions, informative presentations, interactive programming, and networking opportunities that allowed attendees to learn about the latest trends, practices, and ideas in the IDD community.
