ABOUT THE 2018 NATIONAL CONVENTION

The Arc’s National Convention is an annual gathering of families, advocates, and professionals in the disability community. For three days, attendees from all across the country have the chance to learn from and with each other, and expand their knowledge on a variety of topics that affect the lives of them and their loved ones.

 

This year’s event promises not only an exciting location in Music City U.S.A., but a dynamic and diverse program to match. You’ll have dozens of sessions and speakers to choose from on topics like advocacy, supports and services, housing, employment, DSPs, and more.

 

Take in the unique culture of this legendary city while making connections with families, professionals, and advocates from across the country. You’ll have the chance to learn, network, and unwind while building our movement and a stronger, better future for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
