Who should come to the Executive Leadership conference?

Any leader who is a stakeholder in providing services for the blind and visually impaired nationwide in the areas of education, rehabilitation, employment, medical, technology and social services for people of all ages who are blind or have low vision.

What's different about this year's conference?

This year’s annual event will incorporate a new, innovative format called Open Space Technology and will be open to more than just VisionServe members to attend.

Through facilitation support, the participants will be the ones to generate the program and structure the schedule for each day to spur action around the future of blindness & low vision among leaders, stakeholders, and clients across sectors.

What topics will be discussed?

Participants will actually be the ones to determine the topics for the discussion groups, so come prepared to suggest a topic! Here are some ideas:

-Are public and private education resources meeting the needs of students?

-What are the emerging challenges and solutions in employment?

-How can we significantly enhance the resources for training and support for seniors?

-What can be done to assure access to all digital information including government websites, applications and voting processes?

-How can we improve care for our veterans through care partnerships with the private sector?
