AFB is excited to announce that registration for the 2023 American Foundation for the Blind Leader Conference (AFBLC) is now open!
The AFBLC is an annual two-day leadership conference designed to cover the most pressing and relevant topics in blindness. It offers many opportunities to learn from our field's best and brightest minds, make new connections, and reunite with old friends. The 2023 AFBLC will focus on Empowering Digital Inclusion.
AFBLC brings together blind and low-vision leaders by creating a space that provides an opportunity to expand their knowledge of best practices, refine leadership skills, identify inclusion practices that work, and share concerns and strategies. During this conference, you’ll be empowered with resources and action-driven knowledge to help you increase your leadership capacity. At the end of this conference, you will walk away with new innovative ideas to create more inclusivity for people who are blind and have low vision.
“I was honored to be among such high-caliber presenters. I am already integrating much into my work, and I was genuinely impacted by the keynotes’ principles of leadership and systems change. The conference was a gift.”- Former AFBLC participant
Connecting with the community has always been a key part of AFBLC events, and there will be an Ideathon, Dine Around Town, and other small-group networking events. AFBLC will allow for many different opportunities for engagement during the event with fellow attendees, our incredible speakers, and sponsors. The Migel Medal Award, Corinne Kirchner Research Award, and Llura Gund Leadership Award will be presented at the AFB Leadership Conference.
