2022 ACT State Self-Advocacy Conference
April 22, 2022 - April 23, 2022
9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Like the in-person conferences from previous years and last years virtual conference, this will be a self-advocate driven event featuring interactive and engaging sessions. Workshops will follow best practices with small breakout sizes, group discussion and fun activities. Come ready to participate, this is not a by-stander event! Attendees will be sent a packet in the mail ahead of time, stuffed full of goodies, a program book, snacks, a blanket with the conference logo on it, a lucky BINGO card, and other handouts to enhance the experience.
This two-day event will blend the energy of a large crowd in general sessions with the ideal smaller sized breakouts for meaningful engagements. Attendees will get to experience new groups at each session and will enjoy a carefully crafted workshop being led across all breakout that session. Each of these sessions will be led by a skilled and experienced facilitator and will have a self-advocate co-lead when possible. In-between will be fun filled activities including BINGO, a socially dis-dance party, door prizes and the presentation of the 2022 Irving Martin Award for excellence in self-advocacy.
