2021 ACB Conference/Convention

It seems the uncertainty and ever-changing restrictions involving the coronavirus will extend well into 2021. The American Council of the Blind’s concern for everyone’s health and safety remains paramount, and for this reason we have made the decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Conference and Convention in Phoenix, AZ and once again present a virtual convention. Over the coming months we will be developing an engaging and inspiring virtual agenda across a host of interactive and accessible platforms. As in 2020, we will still hold our general sessions, special-interest affiliate, committee and business partner programming.  Vendors will be able to provide information to you about their products. There will again be a virtual walk, auction and banquet.  The popular audio-described virtual tours will return.

The ACB Conference/Convention dates are July 16 through July 23, 2021. For more information, please check the ACB 2021 Conference/Convention page.
