Convention Report

Jermaine East, MHMRA of Brazos Valley

AAIDD Texas Chapter's Convention Committee Chair

We are in our final stretch for a great convention at the Westin Galleria in Houston Texas, July 23-26, 2013  The Convention Planning Committee has worked diligently to make this one of the best Conventions ever.  We have a great program in store for you with speakers from many disciplines with knowledge and expertise in the intellectual and developmental disabilities field.  We have also applied for CNE’s for many of our sessions.  If you have not registered for this great Convention, what are you waiting on? View our Program here and register today.  There also remain opportunities for sponsorships and donations.  Contact any of your Convention Planning Committee members for more information on sponsorships and donations.  I am looking forward to seeing you in Houston, so spread the word, bring a friend or colleague and get registered today.
