    The Premier AT Conference

Conference Overview

In 2022, the Center on Disabilities is excited to return to an in-person conference at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, California. The 37th Annual CSUN AT Conference will take place March 13 – 18, 2022.

Our team has been working diligently since the conclusion of the 2021 CSUN Conference, gathering feedback from our attendees and the community. We are planning on some changes to improve the conference experience and are committed to offering a robust conference experience, including pre-conference workshops, keynote address, educational sessions, vendor exhibits, networking opportunities, and social events.

In an effort to increase room sizes and to utilize the available conference space in the best way possible, there will be an extended conference schedule. Pre-Conference Workshops will take place on Sunday, March 13 and Monday, March 14. The CSUN Conference will kick-off with the Keynote Address in the morning on Tuesday, March 15, with conference sessions commencing following the Keynote and Exhibit Hall opening later that day. Conference sessions, events and Exhibit Hall will continue through Friday, March 18.
