Thursday will conclude with a reception and dinner aboard a real Mississippi River Paddleboat!  Friday will include a morning business meeting, concurrent sessions and conclude with roundtable and poster sessions. A roof top reception will end the day.
Saturday will begin with presentations on the ACEDHH collaboration grant and end at lunchtime with more roundtable and poster sessions.  Saturday afternoon and evening are yours to see the beauty and splendor of  New Orleans and its enticing French Quarter.  Sunday will begin with a business meeting and then two more concurrent sessions.  The conference will close with the Conference banquet ending at 1:30pm.
In addition to 35 different presentations, the ACEDHH Grant Reports and the always exciting business meetings, we expect to have a person from the Office of Education (OSERS) in New Orleans to provide us with an opportunity to learn firsthand about the grant competitions for this coming year!
By all indications attendance looks to be higher than ever.  The CED Board will be meeting during the conference on Saturday.  ACEDHH members are encouraged to invite partners from schools and programs for deaf children to come to the conference to engage in a dialogue:  “Developing a shared vision for teacher preparation for the 21st Century.”
