“You are never alone”
Online registration is now open for the 2015 CDSC Annual Convention. Our theme this year, Connections, highlights how to connect to the right people and the right information, as you navigate life with Down syndrome.
If you participate in Down syndrome Facebook groups, you’ve probably seen advice from our keynote speaker, Amy Allison. Amy is executive director of the Kansas City Down Syndrome Guild, and she’s a superstar in non-profit and Down syndrome worlds!
We’ll also be welcoming motivational speaker and self-advocate Mark Hublar from Indiana. Mark will spend the day with our self-advocates and help introduce the group and their mission of advocacy to the convention at the end of the day.
The convention will be held again this year at the beautiful Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook, CT on Saturday, November 7, 2015. Be sure to take a look at our program offerings. Online registration closes November 2nd — after that a $20 walk-in fee will be charged.
