Region V Services ( is excited to announce their annual Symposium will be held on Thursday, September 21, at the Holthus Event Center in York. The Region V Services Symposium is a day where individuals supported come together and listen to presenters share about themselves, including their life stories and experiences, while attending a professional conference.

Those presenting at the Symposium practice for months leading up to the event in front of friends and family to prepare for the big day. New this year will be a celebration of direct support employees and a session on how to be a better self-advocate for yourself and others presented by Disability Rights Nebraska.
