  AUCD Invites You to Be a Part of the 2020 AUCD Conference

December 6-9 in Washington, DC

About the AUCD Annual Conference

At the AUCD Conference over 1,000 community leaders, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, professionals, advocates, and students will join forces in their commitment to change the world for people with disabilities and their families. Packed with concurrent and poster sessions, plenaries, and numerous networking opportunities, the AUCD Conference is designed to promote innovative thinking that will catapult disability policy, research, and advocacy initiatives to the next level. The Conference is strategically held in Washington, DC, to attract thought leaders from Capitol Hill and the Administration, along with well-known national disability organizations and advocates who work at the federal level.

Recent AUCD Conferences have featured prominent disability leaders including members of Congress, high-level Administration appointees, and key Hill Staff. Sponsors and exhibitors of the Conference will have direct access to AUCD's $650 million national network of directors, researchers, practitioners, and advanced-level Fellows representing university-based programs from every state and territory. Best of all, you'll join an increasingly dynamic conversation focused on the support, inclusion, and well-being of people with disabilities, and demonstrate your organization's commitment to this population.

The sponsor/exhibitor/advertiser application will be available soon. Please contact Laura Martin at [email protected] for questions.


Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsor support ensures that the AUCD Conference continues to deliver cutting-edge content that promotes the health, education, and social and economic welfare of people with disabilities and their families. A portion of the dollars raised will support AUCD’s public policy and advocacy initiatives as well as help us provide conference registration and travel grants to enable people with disabilities, their family members, and other emerging leaders to attend the AUCD Conference. All sponsors will be able to:

  • Have one-on-one interactions with attendees and AUCD leadership
  • Display your message and products prominently to attendees
  • Be recognized prominently both before and during the event with event signage, special mentions during major events, and your logo on the conference website and nationally disseminated promotional materials
  • Connect with attendees at your leisure via our attendee mailing list

Additional deliverables are dependent upon the levels of sponsorship.
