The 2017 Annual Conference on Independent Living is scheduled for this July and we have an exciting Conference planned! The Annual Conference Committee and NCIL staff is quite dedicated all year planning the Conference on a limited budget and we are very committed to keeping costs low to make the Conference as affordable as possible for attendees. To make this Conference affordable for all, we need volunteers!
We hope that IL advocates, family, friends, and supporters around the country will provide significant assistance at the 2017 Annual Conference on Independent Living. We have wonderful incentives for those who put in volunteer hours! We know some of your staff must attend all Conference activities, but if there are others that may not normally get to come to the Conference, incentives for volunteering may be the perfect opportunity for them. If you or your staff volunteers more than 5 hours during the Conference, half of the volunteer’s registration fee is waived / reimbursed. If you or your staff person volunteers 10 or more hours, the volunteer’s full registration fee will be waived / reimbursed. [Read more…]
