Here’s a great opportunity for anyone in the deaf community who is knowledgeable of disability policies who can influence the decision making during the national summit in Washington, DC. National Council on Disability (NCD) are actively looking for applicants who want to become a delegate. Here are the information…
The deadline for submitting an application form for consideration as a National Summit delegate is rapidly approaching. Everyone Needs to Apply by October 15, 2009. Only those who actually submit an application will be considered. If you consider yourself to be a disability policy expert, you too must apply by submitting an application before the October 15 deadline. We want to ensure that you are not left out of this historical event.
The application only takes moments to complete. More than 1,400 people have applied to date. Don’t miss out. We need your expertise. Apply now at http://www.neweditions.net/ncd2010/nomform.aspx. The NCD Selection Committee will invite delegates that include the full range of expertise and diversity. Space is limited so not all registrants can be accepted. Delegate invitations will be distributed starting in January 2010.
There are limited Scholarship Funds available: If selected, consumer delegates (those individuals not affiliated with an organization) will have the option of requesting scholarship funds to cover hotel accommodations and meal per diem. Details will be provided in the invitation letter.
All applications are due by October 15, 2009!
