Amputee Coalition’s 2021 National Conference
September 29-October 2
Amputee Coalition will host the 2021 National Conference virtually, September 29-October 2.
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 and will ask for your ideas.
We will open conference registration and release the call for presenters by the end of June 2021. Continue to check our website and your email for updates.
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.View More Questions and Answers
