The 62nd Convention is the best way for members and activists to share their input and voice as we collectively come together to discuss the organization's direction. For over six decades, ADA activists have come together to recommit their passions, revamp our policy proposals and renew our organization. Please join us and help us make this convention a success.
June 10, 2010 - We'll meet at the Capitol Visitors Center on Capitol Hill where we will have Progressive Members of Congress join us and share their views with us. We will host a panel to examine what really has happened with health care reform in all its dimensions. There will also host prominent policy experts on jobs, financial reform and climate change.
June 11, 2010 - We'll convene at the National Headquarters of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest union, to decide ADA's issues and priorities of for the next two years. Organizers from our Working Families Win project will join us and explain how they're effectively organizing thousands of community activists all over the country. There will also be elections for our organization's leaders for 2010 and 2011. After the day at the NEA, we'll head over to the Beacon Hotel for a formal banquet celebration where we'll celebrate important movement leaders (more details on the banquet below).
June 12, 2010 - We'll conclude at the NEA Building by finalizing our policy proposals and setting our priorities for the 2010 election and the next two years.
