UCP 2022 Annual Conference, May 3-4


If it’s spring, then the *UCP 2022 Annual Conference must be right around the corner. If you haven’t yet marked your calendars, the conference is May 3-4, Noon to 3:30 p.m. Eastern each day.

This year’s conference is free, virtual and open to the public.

In fact, this is only the second year the conference has been open to our affiliates and the general public, a practice we plan to pursue when we return to in-person gatherings. Please check out the event webpage for full conference details.

The team at UCP has put together a great lineup of speakers and presentations. Our panel discussions this year will highlight the latest pediatric therapy practices, accessibility and innovation in transportation, the growing challenges facing disability service professionals, and an analysis of the top public policy issues affecting our country’s disability community.

In addition, we’re proud to announce this year’s distinguished keynote speakers:

On May 3, actor, producer and disability rights activist RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad, Triumph) will deliver a presentation called “Arts, Advocacy and Triumphs.”

On May 4, Neil Jacobson, a lifelong activist and founder and CEO of AbliliCorp, will present, “Neil Jacobson: Beyond Crip Camp; A Lifetime of Disability Rights Advocacy.” Both will be taking audience questions.

Of course, this conference would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Special thanks goes to Waymo for serving as this year’s premier sponsor and its ongoing support year round. We also want to thank CARF International for their generous support. On the opening day of the conference, we’ll get to hear from Waymo Public Affairs Manager Amanda Zink.

We look forward to seeing you at the UCP 2022 Annual Conference. Click here for more details and registration information.
