About the Event

The Arc of Virginia's Annual Statewide Convention is an unmatched opportunity to connect and learn with advocates, professionals, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. We are seeking knowledgeable, diverse, and experienced speakers to equip our attendees with information, tools, and inspiration.

Event Theme

Creating Change Together speaks to the work The Arc of Virginia has been doing -- and the work in front of all of us as we face multiple and significant changes. 

The 2023 Elections of our State Legislature will result in a consequential turnover of General Assembly Members. The makeup of our Legislature impacts our Public Policy Advocacy and the relationships we form impact our ability to impact policy that will help people with disabilities to live better lives. 

With our 2023 Public Awareness Campaign, we seek to effect change in the views and perceptions that the general public hold. In doing! so we can effect both change and Action
