Amputee Coalition’s 2021 National Conference
September 29-October 2

Dear community members and professionals,

It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for – the Amputee Coalition 2021 National Conference!


In a time when feeling connected has become more important than ever, we hope you will join us virtually September 29th – October 2nd, 2021 as members of the limb loss and limb difference community, expert presenters, and exhibitors join to network and support one another through an educational environment. The conference will offer informational sessions and resources around health and wellness, community living, work and career, youth and family, as well as ways to navigate the current COVID-19 environment.

Providing the Conference as a dynamic online experience means more participants can attend and have access to our renowned experts, informational exhibitors, and meet old friends and get to know new folks just like you!

Our 2021 conference will be different, and we understand the disappointment associated with not engaging with friends, colleagues, and community members in person. However, we are committed to our community’s health and safety and partnering to develop and execute an innovative, inclusive experience that will include a virtual exhibit hall, expansive peer support and educational sessions, and, best of all, fun.

We have challenged ourselves to bring a spirit of innovation to the planning, outreach, and execution of this year’s conference.

  • Learn from our presenters and ask questions.
  • Visit the online exhibit hall and chat one-on-one with exhibitors.
  • Connect with other National Conference participants in face-to-face chats.
  • Watch recordings of sessions you may have missed or want to watch again.

Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to connect with others and share your story from the comfort of your own home – this year, community member registration is only $50 and there’s no need to pay for a flight or a hotel room!

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you in the fall!


Frequently Asked Questions

Why is 2021 National Conference being hosted virtually? 

While 2021 conference will be different and we understand the disappointment associated with not being able to physically engage with friends, colleagues, and community members, we are committed to the health and safety of our community first. 

We also weighed consistent community feedback about what makes the conference experience meaningful which falls onto three categories: engagement with fellow community members, access to exhibitors, and timely educational sessions in order to ensure we can deliver on each area during the 2021 conference and beyond. We can and we will. 

Finally, staff and community stakeholders assessed our 2020 convening and saw an increase in access for community members. More than fifty percent of last year’s attendees were first time participants. Of those first-time attendees, many told us they were previously unable to participate due to cost or mobility issues.
