Registration is open for FL SAND Annual Conference January 6-8 in Orlando

Head here to register and book your room for "Speakin' Up & Movin' Out," the 5th Annual FL SAND Conference, January 6-8 in Orlando.

The conference will take place at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center near the Florida Mall. All self-advocates in Florida are invited to attend the conference, regardless of their affiliation with FL SAND, but they must register by December 6 to avoid paying a registration fee.

FL SAND's conference planning committee is working now, putting together an exciting and educational slate of programs and activities, including dinner out and dancing on Saturday. Sessions will include training in fundraising, pursuing community leadership opportunities, the nuts and bolts of running a local self-advocacy group, and more.

This year's theme "Speakin' Up & Movin' Out" represents the organization's goal of greater influence at the state and grassroots level. FL SAND (Florida Self-Advocates Network'D) is a statewide organization that exists to support local advocacy efforts and provide a united voice for statewide issues and topics that are important to self-advocates and all persons with disabilities in Florida. FL SAND's 15 local groups are all led by self-advocates and operate independently of provider organizations.
