Good News Friday!

Today, I’d like to offer a hearty congratulations to my friend and colleague Greg Wellems, Imagine!’s Director of Business Operations, who has been selected as a 2017 ANCOR Legacy Leader.

The American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) is a national, nonprofit trade association representing more than 1000 private community providers of services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). ANCOR’s Legacy Leaders Circle was created to honor the finest and most influential leaders in ANCOR and in the world of I/DD services.

Greg certainly fits the bill. Greg attended his first ANCOR Management Practices Conference in the 1990s. Since that time Greg has participated in ANCOR’s Leadership Taskforce, their Communications Committee, their Technology Task Force, the planning committee for the ANCOR Technology Summit, and served on both the ANCOR Board of Directors and Board of Representatives.

As impressive as those credentials are, where Greg has really made his impact on ANCOR, and by extension, the field of serving people with I/DD, is through his many presentations at ANCOR events. Greg has been a frequent presenter and panelist at two of ANCOR’s premier annual conferences: the ANCOR Technology Summit and the ANCOR Management Practices Conference.

Greg will be honored at the 2017 ANCOR Annual Conference in San Antonio. This award is extremely well deserved and is a meaningful way to honor a career based on the belief that people with I/DD have strengths and talents that when cultivated make their communities better, stronger, and healthier.

On behalf of Imagine! and those we serve, I’d like to thank Greg for all he has done to create a world of opportunity for all abilities.
