National Conference

The Amputee Coalition is committed to diversity and inclusion and we have been working with the Sheraton Greensboro at Four Seasons, Greensboro CVB and the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce to ensure they are as committed to these values as we are. Click here to read more about our stance regarding the recent action taken by the North Carolina legislature, which prohibits local government entities in North Carolina from passing ordinances protecting individuals from discrimination based upon gender identity.

30 Years Serving the Limb Loss Community

Celebrate 30 years of the Amputee Coalition and you at the 2016 National Conference!

No other event for the limb loss community is as highly anticipated. If you’re an amputee, spouse, family member, caregiver, support group leader or professional who works with the limb loss community, the Amputee Coalition 2016 National Conference, June 9-11, is the place to be!

Join us for three days of networking, education, clinics and adaptive sports and recreation! With over 850 attendees at the 2015 National Conference, it is the largest gathering of the limb loss community in the country! The Conference is a perfect opportunity to meet new friends, learn about new technology, and attend sessions to help live a full and productive life with limb loss.
