On behalf of the AUCD, the Program Planning Committee, and Bill Kiernan, Program Chairperson, we invite you to register for the 2007 AUCD Annual Meeting and Conference.

The 2007 AUCD Annual Meeting and Conference is a special opportunity to share your interests, talents, and perspectives with the AUCD network and its partners. The theme is broad and emphasizes the interrelationship of research, education, service, and policy at the international, national, state, and local levels. This year’s annual meeting is a call to act, understand, expand, and integrate findings and education with policy and practice which will lead to inquiry, understanding, and learning that will reinforce the expansion of a system which embraces self-determination, interdependence, and inclusion. Join your colleagues as we challenge how we think about today in order to use it to shape how we think about tomorrow.
