Corinne Seaton, CLASP President
Coalition of Local Area Service Providers
We invite our entire vendor community to join the Coalition of Local Area Service Providers (CLASP)! This monthly forum is a wonderful opportunity to get to know other people providing services in your area, learn about changes to policies and regulations that may directly affect you, and receive guidance and support whether you are a new provider or a veteran in the industry. In addition, you receive training discounts and access to a mailing list about upcoming events and relevant legislative changes.
The Coalition of Local Area Service Providers (CLASP), is an association of Valley Mountain Regional Center (VMRC) service providers whose leadership team serves as the professional advisory committee for the regional center. We represent the interests and the point of view of service providers on the VMRC Consumer Services Committee, the Nominating Committee, the Finance and Personnel committee, the Legislative Committee and we hold a seat on the Board of Directors of VMRC. These positions are written in statute of the Lanterman Act and or the VMRC by-laws. (Pictured here is Corinne Seaton, President of CLASP.)
The road ahead can seem a little scary by yourself but together we'll straighten things out! MEMBERSHIP MATTERS!
Membership ensures that CLASP will be effective and successful especially if the provider community is truly engaged and representative of the diversity of services provided in the Valley Mountain region. We urge all service providers of VMRC to join CLASP and become active members of the organization today.
Our meetings are held monthly. CLASP meetings take place at Valley Mountain Regional Center, 702 North Aurora Street in Stockton, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. on the 4th Monday of every month. Annual Membership costs $25 a year and entitles members to discounts on CLASP sponsored training and conferences, access to the CLASP e-mail group LISTSERV, Provider Action Alerts, and collegial professional development. 
Please consider joining CLASP so that your voice and your concerns can be heard by Valley Mountain Regional Center. The CLASP membership application is linked here . If you have any questions or would like to learn more, feel free to call me at (209) 267-5978 ext 29.
