The keynote address will be presented by Mark Perriello, President and CEO of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).
The AAPD is the nation's largest cross-disability membership organization. Perriello, who has had a visual disability since childhood, has a proven track record of increasing organizational standing with decision makers through creative and high-impact grassroots and grass-tops programs across America. As a political strategist, he oversaw highly successful efforts to elect candidates to office at the federal, state, and local level.
Before joining AAPD, Perriello served as the White House Liaison at the U.S. Department of the Interior and worked as the White House Priority Placement Director, where he was instrumental in placing diverse candidates in jobs in the administration. Due in large part to his work, the Obama Administration is one of the most diverse in U.S. history. Prior to that, Perriello served in leadership roles in the LGBT community fundraising, organizing, and developing communications strategies at the Human Rights Campaign and Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and Leadership Institute.
Breakout sessions will be offered following the keynote to explore the integration of disability and social work in specific settings and populations. 3 CEUs offered. See Registration Form for details.
