Let’s Get Ready for Conference 2017

Conference 2017 registration is over and we have only a few days left before our annual conference 2017! I know we are excited and hope all of you are too! If you are going, we look forward to seeing you, but if you are not, you will be missed and hope to see you at other events throughout the year.

Let’s take a look and what to expect at this year’s conference.¬†The theme is “Taking Charge of Your Life.” There will be presentations on a service called Text-to-911. John Sherwood presented on this last year, but there are updates, which he will talk about. We will talk about self-advocacy with the North Carolina Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DSDHH) presenting. UNC-Asheville will come talk to us about healthy living.

Saturday should be a fun day with the focus on the arts. Eddie Weaver is coming with his drums and there will be breakout sessions to play the drums, paint, and learn how to make a bracelet. In the afternoon, we will have a trip to the aquarium and for those who stay at the hotel, there will be beach games. As usual, the conference also includes our annual meeting and will vote on some important issue. This is just a summary of the events. Take a look at the final agenda to see what else will happen.
