Thank you to the hundreds of past attendees of The Arc’s National Convention who shared their thoughts on how we could improve our annual event. We learned from all of the survey responses what you really want from this important event, and this year you can expect a fresh and exciting program in New Orleans from September 30 – October 2.
We are thrilled to announce Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize- winning journalist and author will be one of our keynote speakers. His latest work, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism, chronicles his family’s twenty year struggle with their youngest son’s autism. Ron will be attending convention with his son Owen and his wife Cornelia. Plus, Fred Maahs, Director of National Partnerships for Comcast Corporation and Vice President of Comcast Foundation, will speak about his personal experience as a person with a disability, his commitment to community service, and the benefits of corporate/nonprofit partnerships.
