The Arc’s 2012 National Convention

Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue will be on hand to receive this year’s President’s Award at The Arc’s National Convention & International Forum October 25-28 in Washington, D.C. Commissioner Astrue is being honored for a steadfast commitment to people with disabilities, including people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, during his tenure at the Social Security Administration.  He helped reduce the average length of time applicants wait to receive Social Security disability benefits and helped develop and expand initiatives such as Compassionate Allowances and Quick Disability Determinations that seek to provide benefits quickly to applicants with the most severe disabilities. Plan to join us to hear from the Commissioner personally. Check out the full program and register now.
