Conference Banner, Bridging Opportunities: We are known by the tracks we leave - June 7-9, 2017

2017 National Conference

Please join us for our 43rd national conference and annual meeting to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, June 7-9, 2017.  Scottsdale is a beautiful location, with the Sonoran Desert as its backdrop and a watercolor sky as its canopy. It also lies within a state rich in Native American tradition, and we have embraced that tradition with our conference theme, “We are known by the tracks that we leave.”  Our theme recognizes the importance of ensuring that we are developing and leaving a more diverse and inclusive legacy than we found.  Our robust pre-conference and conference programs are designed to lay the “tracks” for the challenges and opportunities to promote access, equity and diversity both now and in the future.  Come attend the conference, bring your family and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the desert southwest.
