Conferences and Conventions
Think about attending a convention this year. Conventions are a great way to make new friends, share experiences and ideas. There is plenty of new information in the areas of accessible media, technology, transportation, independent living, health care, laws pertaining to the Americans with Disabilities Act, self-advocacy and so much more!
