The conference is scheduled for April 30-May 2.  Be sure to get the dates on your calendar now, you won't want to miss it!  The theme for this year's conference is Innovation, Collaboration, Alignment.

The primary goal of the conference is to provide "key" Paralympic audiences including community leaders, military personnel, sport and recreation program specialists, coaches, therapists, researchers, educators, college students, and other interested parties from across the USA, the tools and the inspiration to implement and support successful Paralympic sport programs in their communities.

Interactive conference sessions offer attendees opportunities to learn how to build a community program or grow the program you're already running, teach the basics of a variety of Paralympic sports so you can include them in your programs and develop leadership skills that will help you take your program to the next level.

Special working sessions are offered specifically for organizations that work with military members with physical injuries and open conference sessions offer tips and insight into how to incorporate service members into your ongoing community programs.  

The 2010 conference will also offer a special working session targeted to our Paralympic Sport Club partner organizations.
