Group interaction and dialogue create mutual support and give rise to the greatest learning. Members, all providers of services to people with disabilities, readily mentor other members and share the advantages of their knowledge and experience. CPAO members bring insight and information from their involvement in regional, state, and national programs to the association. CPAO offers numerous opportunities to exchange ideas, innovations, and strategies. Members utilize CPAO as a sounding board to handle challenges or to work out their own ideas or plans.
CPAO supports the National Advocacy Campaign, which addresses Medicaid funding and workforce issues. Objectives of the campaign include obtaining wage and benefit enhancements, creating need for a national policy to address workforce shortages, demonstrating the critical role direct support professionals make in enhancing the lives of Americans with disabilities, securing incentive for solidifying a career path for direct support professionals, and building the level of public awareness of the depth of private provider services.
