Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) Commissioner Lynnae Ruttledge will give keynote remarks at the Annual Summit on Vocational Rehabilitation Evaluation and Quality Assurance on Tuesday, Sept. 13 in Tampa. She will discuss creating partnerships to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The theme of the conference is “Bridging the Gap: Making a Difference through Program Evaluation.”
The summit brings together vocational rehabilitation program evaluation specialists to create a learning community where research, expertise, ideas, and feedback from others merge to establish and develop best practices in program planning and evaluation. It provides a forum for attendees to build interstate relationships and inspire others to look at improving methods, tools, processes and practices as a way of advocating that vocational rehabilitation consumers receive the highest quality services.
