30-Year Anniversary Celebrated

The Amputee Coalition National Conference in Greensboro, North Carolina last week was celebrated by 1,075 attendees, approximately 200 more than in 2015. Plans for the 2017 National Conference in Louisville, Kentucky are already underway.

“This was our most successful conference in our 30-year history, “said Susan Stout, president & CEO of the Amputee Coalition. “With more sessions offered than ever before and the largest Conference and exhibit hall, it seems fitting that we also set an all-time attendance record. We are thrilled that so many people invested their valuable time to travel to our Conference and actively participate in our many educational and social activities.”

The Amputee Coalition especially thanks all of the presenters for the record 95 sessions and 60 exhibiting companies including the organization’s National Sponsors and many other exhibitors, the Sheraton Greensboro Four Seasons and their staff, and the many volunteers and supporters of the Amputee Coalition.

Building on the momentum from last week’s 2016 Conference, the Amputee Coalition is already planning to make the 2017 National Conference even more spectacular.

Save the Date for August 5-7 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. With over a year to plan, we encourage everyone to look at their calendars and travel plans soon. The Amputee Coalition has some great tips and advice to keep in mind when getting ready for next year’s 2017 National Conference.

The 2016 National Conference provided many sessions and offered something for attendees of all ages. For a hint of what may be at the 2017 event, click here for a copy of the 2016 final program.
