2024 Spring Leadership LAUNCHpad

Leadership LAUNCHpad is a unique retreat, immersing each participant in a leadership-themed environment shared with like-minded people. Each retreat is its own universe, separate from "the outside world," so participants are empowered to concentrate on personal development, network, and leave with a clearer sense of their leadership identities.

Leadership LAUNCHpad is open to everyone, including DSPs, Frontline Supervisors, Program Directors, QIDDPs, Executive Directors, and staff from County Board and state departments of developmental disabilities. OADSP's diverse community gives those who register and attend the opportunity to interact with and learn from a wide variety of people.

  • 2 breakfasts, 3 buffet lunches, and snack breaks
  • Educational materials, tools, and assessments
  • Evening networking opportunities
  • Presentations from subject matter experts
  • Hands-on learning experiences
  • Post-participation follow-up and support

All LAUNCHpad participants are required to stay onsite, even if locally situated. This is a key element of the "retreat" aspect of the experience.

Registration is limited to 2 attendees per organization.

Registration may be paid via PayPal or check. If paying by check, an invoice will be emailed to the Billing Email required on the registration form.

* Rate is based on double room occupancy. Add $150 for single room occupancy.


Participants must notify OADSP in writing by 3/6/2024 to receive a full refund, minus a $50 processing fee. This timing provides an opportunity to fill the vacated space. If cancellation is necessary on or after 3/6/2024, no refund will be given, but an organization may substitute a different participant. OADSP cannot give any refund for no-shows. Thank you for respecting the entirety of this cancellation policy.
