2011 Conference Program Information
AHEAD is indebted to the tireless work and dedication of this year’s Program Chair, Margaret Camp of University of South Carolina Upstate, a team of Topical Track Coordinators (listed below), and numerous Reviewers (who will be recognized in the Conference Program Book) to bring you this year’s Conference in Seattle.
From a pool of 250+ proposals, the Program team crafted a rich, well-balanced program designed specifically for disability service/resource personnel, secondary educators who want to learn more about the college environment, ADA Coordinators, and many more campus professionals at every level.
Our Preconference Institutes on Monday and Tuesday of the Conference offer foundational and advanced workshop-style programs in two-day, one-day and half-day formats. The concurrent sessions are organized along topical tracks. Many people like to follow one thread throughout, while others pick and choose based on need and interest – either way is fine!

Civil Rights and Disability Legislation: Sustaining our Work
Creative Partnerships to Promote Sustainable Access
Barbara Blacklock & Betty Benson, University of Minnesota
