BUILDING ON OUR SUCCESS

It was incredible witnessing everyone reunite in 2022 to discuss, share and learn from each other.  The energy at the conference was electric!  The changes we made to improve your conference experience paid off, and the feedback was fantastic.

We’re already planning the 2023 conference, and this summer brings opportunities to exhibit, sponsor and submit presentations where you can join other industry thought leaders to make a difference.  Looking ahead, we know that our conference participants have a lot of valuable insights, and we would love to hear all of them.  Make your voice heard by completing our newest conference survey.  As a bonus, complete the survey by Monday, June 6, to be entered to win a complimentary conference registration for 2023.

WE’RE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE

Sandy Plotin, Managing Director of the CSUN Center on Disabilities, retired in April.  We are grateful for her dedication and service for the past 17 years!  Under her leadership, the CSUN Conference became the prestigious conference we know today.  We wish her well on her next adventures in life!

Julia Santiago now leads the department as the Interim Managing Director.  For ten years, Julia has been the department’s Assistant Director.  We look forward to the future under her leadership.  She prioritizes listening to our stakeholders to discover new ways to improve the conference experience.
