  2019 UCEDD Directors Retreat

Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm ET

The UCEDD Directors Retreat is a focused, 6-hour meeting that provides an opportunity for network and central office leadership to discuss topics of critical importance to the UCEDD network, outside the presence of federal funders.

To honor the feedback we received from past retreats, we've made the following changes:

  • The 2019 retreat has been extended by two hours to allow more time for in-depth discussion, and will run from 10 am to 4 pm on Tuesday, March 19.
  • We are offering a "Meeting Only" option, which allows you to register for the Directors' Retreat only. If you wish to attend the AUCD Gala as well, please register for the "Full Day" option.

  2019 TA Institute

Wednesday, March 20, 2019,  8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Thursday, March 21, 2019,  8:30 am - 12:00 pm

The TA Institute provides an opportunity for UCEDD leaders to network, meet with their federal project officers, and learn of new initiatives, national trends, and other information vital to the administration of the UCEDD programs.
