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.”
There will be an ACE-DHH Officers’ Board meeting on Wednesday, 7 to 9 p.m.
2000-2001 Officers will have a meeting after the banquet on Sunday.
