Come Join Us!
Welcome to the 43rd Annual Convention of the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) Texas Chapter! We are happy to return to the beautiful Omni Corpus Christi in Corpus Christi, Texas, where they know how to serve up the Texas hospitality. This year's event will take place on July 24 through 27, 2018. Be sure to make your plans early. With high demand for hotel rooms, we expect a sellout. We look forward to sharing the week with you.

Consumer Stipend Announcement
The Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Texas Chapter has applied for a consumer stipend grant from the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities. The purpose of the grant is to enable individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and their family members, who are without organizational support, to attend the 2018 AAIDD Texas Chapter Annual Convention. By promoting inclusion, AAIDD Texas Chapter can extend to stipend recipients the benefits that are available to all persons who will attend the convention.
Note: Registration fees include Wednesday – Friday sessions, daily coffee breaks and the Thursday Awards Luncheon. Hotel accommodations are based on double occupancy at The Omni Corpus Christi. Stipend recipients are responsible for making their own arrangements for meals and transportation, but recipients may receive reimbursement for food and travel expenses if receipts are submitted.
The AAIDD Texas Chapter Consumer Stipend Committee will award stipends. In order to be considered, stipend application and eligibility verification forms must be submitted by June 29, 2018.
