The Amputee Coalition held its National Conference virtually last year, and the results were truly outstanding: They put on a great show and set an all-time record for attendance. But there’s still no substitute for face-to-face gatherings to build relationships. So to maximize the odds that people can attend this year’s Conference in person, and to minimize the chances of a COVID disruption, the Coalition has pushed the event back from the usual mid-summer dates to early autumn.

The specific dates are September 29 through October 2. It’s being held in Schaumburg IL, a short Lyft ride from O’Hare and a longish CTA ride from Chicago.

If you enjoyed participating remotely last year, fear not. The conference will include hybrid sessions that you can attend virtually. Registration will begin in a few weeks. Get more details at the Coalition’s website.
