Training Overview Description

Conference Cancellation

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and at the direction and advisement from the CDC and our state and local officials, we are sad to announce the cancellation of the 19th annual Full Lives Conference, scheduled for April 22 - 24.

We feel it is important to implement these preventative measures and continue to act in the best interest of public health and safety.

We regret the logistical inconveniences that may arise as a result of this decision and sincerely regret the disruption. All registered participants and exhibitors for the conference will automatically be withdrawn and any payments made will then be refunded. There is no need to contact the LMS Training Support team to ensure your refund is started.

Stay healthy and be well.


All participants will be automatically withdrawn.


All payments will be refunded. Receipts will be sent to the address associated with your credit card. Please be patient as we process refunds.

The Alaska Training Cooperative in collaboration with the State of Alaska Senior & Disability Services, UAA Center for Human Development, and the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority is pleased to present the 2020 Full Lives Conference. Our theme for this year is Power in Our Voice. Keynote presentations and breakout sessions focus on the efforts and trends within the industry to highlight the important role advocacy and self-advocacy play with those we support.

Full Lives draws a wide range of attendees that provide services in developmental disabilities, behavioral health, traumatic brain injuries, substance-related disorders, and senior services. Attendees include case managers, direct support professionals, care coordinators, community advocates, supervisors, administrators, self-advocates, caregivers, and families receiving services.

The Full Lives Conference encourages interaction, problem-solving, and sharing among all participants. This atmosphere contributes to a dynamic conference that encourages ongoing networking and collaboration.
