Mark your calendar for the Disability Policy Seminar in Washington D.C. April 15-17.
Register before next week’s early registration deadline and save on registration fees and hotel accommodations at the Grand Hyatt Downtown D.C. After March 12, registration and room rates will increase. But you still have time to save!
Hotel rooms are booking fast, especially for the days leading up to the seminar as families travel to D.C. for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival.
This seminar is a valuable opportunity to learn more about the critical public policy issues facing people with I/DD and their families this year. In addition to two full days of in-depth discussions of the issues, participants in this year’s Seminar will be treated to:
A FREE copy of the special April issue of AAIDD’s journal, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, which addresses the dual concerns of defining and naming intellectual disability with perspectives on the current and proposed conventions for classification and naming of intellectual disabilities from familiar authors and key thinkers on the topic of definition, classification, and assessment.
AAIDD will also have a selection of titles available at the Seminar for purchase.
A FREE copy of the latest edition of the State of the States in Developmental Disabilities from the University of Colorado and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
A continental breakfast on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning just prior to the scheduled visits with your representative’s offices. Although there is no cost, this is a ticketed event and you must sign up to attend when you register online – seats are limited and tickets are first-come, first-served. Reserve your spot at the Seminar today.
Hosted by: The Arc, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD), National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), and Self-Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE)
