Today, July 26th, is the 31st Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We are incredibly thankful to Vispero for providing the first corporate contributions of this year-long ACB 60 for 60 campaign, and for launching a matching challenge to our ACB Members and our partners. Vispero will double every contribution made to the 60 for 60 campaign up to $10,000 over the month. Their matching challenge will start today, July 26th in honor of the ADA's 31st Anniversary until August 31st 2021. To join the challenge in honor of the ADA’s anniversary today, please share this message and donate at www.acb.org/donate.
2021 ACB Convention
Thank you to all who participated or engaged in this year’s 2021 ACB 60th Anniversary Conference and Convention. It was truly a spectacular event with over 166 breakout sessions and many ways to participate including Zoom, ACB Media Network, YouTube, Facebook, Clubhouse, and our community events.
We also held our first virtual elections which were a great success. During the convention, a special motion was passed to allow for the convention to be adjourned until August 14th at 8pm ET for a special order of business to consider amendments to the ACB Constitution and Bylaws as may be necessary to align its meeting and voting practices with the provisions of District of Columbia Nonprofit Corporation Act of 2010. For more information about the special motion, visit https://acb.org/remote-voting-motion-2021-convention.
We hope that you enjoyed the events and that you felt reconnected to the ACB family and had a chance to meet new friends and learn a little throughout the week.
ACB will be launching the podcast content from the convention sessions throughout the month of August. Stay tuned for a list of when the sessions will be available and which convention track they were listed under. For those who were registered for the 2021 ACB convention, please keep an eye out in the coming weeks for a survey to let us know how you enjoyed the events and for what suggestions you have for future ACB convention ideas.
