Introducing AUCD 2014
November 9-12: Washington, DC
The 2014 AUCD Conference theme reflects our goal of achieving an elevated level of engagement with our respective and collective communities, networks, and well beyond in order to better inform, enhance, and enrich the work we all do to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families.
The Power of Engagement is reflected in changes we have made to the conference format to offer attendees more time to connect with one another and with the information presented. This year, we launch a series of poster symposia, where posters will be grouped and showcased together by common themes. We look forward to seeing how this more comprehensive model serves in deepening engagement with the work displayed.
Ink your calendars, get your submissions in, and make travel plans accordingly to participate in this engaging event that will serve in keeping our work relevant and our vision strong.
