NCE at Convention


Reaching Our Leadership Potential in the Modern Era

Friday, October 11, 2019 | 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
This is a ticketed event ($150/NCE member and $200/non-member).

Being a leader in today’s fast-paced, high tech environment carries more challenges than in the past. We have to perform and navigate in a landscape that requires constant change and flexibility. Are we using all of our potential to lead our organizations effectively? Join us for an engaging two-part conversation as we seek to first, understand how to identify and remove the barriers to our success as leaders, and then explore how to advance our personal vision and organizational mission for ongoing effectiveness.


Friday, October 11, 2019 | 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
This event is open to all chapter leaders.

The National Conference of Executives (NCE) knows that the value of the organization is its dedication to creating a space for chapter leaders to engage, absorb, dialogue, cultivate, advance, innovate, surpass, and create change in the I/DD community and the world! With so much to look forward to, join your peers from around the country for a pre-convention reception hosted by NCE.


Looking for a way to help support the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities?

As the largest national community-based organization advocating for and with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and serving them and their families, The Arc and our over 600 chapters across the nation work tirelessly to protect and promote the rights of the disability community.

How can you help support our mission?

The Arc’s Silent Auction is the premier fundraising event of the National Conference of Executives (NCE) of The Arc. The Silent Auction is held each year at The Arc’s National Convention.

We are currently looking for item donations that will allow us raise money to deliver better services to support people with I/DD and their families. Please consider showing your support for The Arc and our mission by donating an item today!

Donations in past years have included gift cards, jewelry, clothing, art work, gift baskets, sports memorabilia, musical instruments, vouchers to hotel stays, vacation destinations, museums, restaurants, concerts, and much more.


Thank you for helping us build a bigger and better movement for disability rights and inclusion!

The Arc’s Silent Auction is presented by its National Conference of Executives (NCE).
