Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich will be the keynote speaker at the New Jersey Association of Community Providers’ (NJACP) first Executive Leadership Forum on Friday, Sept. 22. 

This event, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton, brings together executives, stakeholders, and advocates to engage in a meaningful discussion about the pressing issues surrounding IDD community supports and services.  

“We are excited to host NJACP’s first annual Executive Forum and honored to have Governor John Kasich speak to the IDD community,” said NJACP CEO Valerie Sellers. “He not only demonstrated deep commitment to the intellectual and developmental disability community as governor but was a leading voice in promoting bipartisan solutions to healthcare reform, immigration and international trade and one of the few Republicans to advocate for Medicaid’s expansion speak to our community.”   

Kasich’s additional roles as the author of four New York Times bestsellers and in 2023, joined the MSNBC/NBC News as a political analyst, where he has continually demonstrated his belief that unity is the answer to the most common problems, will help to inform agency executives efforts to improve people’ lives with the services and supports they provide to individuals with IDD.
