2020 National Conference Program
All times listed are Eastern Standard Time (EST).
4 – 5 p.m.
Networking Lounge Open
Virtual doesn’t mean we can’t see each other and catch up! Come on in, connect with one another, and start trying out the virtual Conference system! The lounge is a great place for seasoned attendees to catch up with old friends, and a great place for first-time attendees to meet new friends and connect with others who share their experience. Networking tip: If you see someone in the hangout you’ve never met before, go ahead and introduce yourself first!
5 – 6 p.m.
Opening Ceremony and Keynote
Mary Richards, President & CEO
Jeff Cain, Board Chair
U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Dan Ignaszewski, Chief Policy and Programs Officer
John Register, Board of Directors
Angel Giuffria, Youth Advisor
Welcome to the 2020 National Conference: The Power of You. The venue may be different, but the excitement remains the same! Hear about what the Amputee Coalition is working on to serve you, and get ready to learn about what the week has in store!
6 – 7:30 p.m.
Let’s hang out — virtually! Join a table or work the room and get a chance to connect with other people living with limb loss and limb difference, see old friends, and make new ones. Networking tip: Set a timer for 60 seconds and see how many things you can find you have in common with someone new!
6 – 7:30 p.m.
Exhibit Hall Opening
Check out dozens of booths covering clinical care, orthotics and prosthetics, hospital partners, skin care, nonprofit services, and more! Setup your attendee profile, then check-out both the Exhibit Hall (sort by vendor) or the Product Hall (sort by product or service type).
You can visit the Exhibit Hall anytime during the Conference! But, to ensure you don’t have to choose between a stellar session and a great chat with an exhibitor, we’ve set aside unobstructed exhibit hall hours.
And the best part? No crowds! Schedule one-on-one sessions with experts. Not ready for a one-on-one demo? Use the chat box functionality to send our exhibitors questions or download documents and videos to learn more.
