ACB is pleased to announce that a wide range of continuing education (CE) and professional development (PD) opportunities will once again be offered at our 2021 virtual conference and convention. Continuing education units are recognized by the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP). Individuals working in vision and many other fields may also earn professional development hours from home or office through the power of ACB Radio and the Zoom platform. No need to purchase an airline ticket, spend money on hotel and food, and wait for travel authorizations from work.
Beginning with the conference pre-registration in 2021, you will be able to purchase CE units and PD hours that you can then apply to presentations and programming throughout the convention week. Mix and match general session programming, exhibit presentations, tours, and sessions sponsored by ACB and its committees, special-interest affiliates, and partners to create an experience tailored to your needs. Topics will include but are not limited to employment, technology, health and leisure, orientation and mobility, self-advocacy, braille, low vision, and much more. Many opportunities will be listed in the pre-registration information, while others will be announced in the official convention program and via the acbconvention email list.
