Our Annual Membership Meeting and State Conference will be held in the fall of 2020, just as we have done for years. Only this year, you will have the opportunity to experience our program virtually. We will be announcing updates very soon but we already have some excellent speakers lined up from the LA Department of Health, and national speakers that you will not want to miss.
We are very excited to be able to offer this to our members and attendees. Even though we will not be able to see you in person, we can still provide the same quality of information that you have come to expect from AAIDD-LA!
More to come...
