All meetings are coordinated with the intent to select facilities that comply with ADA Guidelines as much as possible, balanced with the need to coordinate adequate meeting space and lodging.

Accommodations, including the provision of interpreters, assistive listening devices, and materials in alternate formats are available upon request. Although every effort will be made to arrange accommodations within 48 hour notice, the SRC requests two week notice to insure accommodations. If you would like to receive this announcement in an alternate format, or need information about accommodations, please contact the SRC.


Employer and Employment Partner Nomination Forms

The SRC recognizes the hard work that community partners and employers do to help VR consumers achieve employment. Awards for this partnership are given at the Quarterly meetings. If you have a partner you would like to recognize for their outstanding efforts to support Oregonians with Disabilities in employment goals, please fill out one of these forms and an SRC team member will get back to you about the details for receiving and presenting the awards at our next quarterly meeting. Please do your best to make sure all contact information is current and accurate as well as the spelling of names and businesses. Please return completed forms to the SRC Coordinator.
