The American Foundation for the Blind and Illinois AER invite you to the jointly hosted 2013 Leadership Conference. Join experts and colleagues for intensive pre-conference sessions on April 18 (pre-conference fee is $75) and full-conference sessions on April 19 and 20 (an additional $175).

A one-day rate of $100 is available for either April 19 or 20. Your fee for all three days will be $250, or just $175 for the Leadership conference itself.

Rates will increase on April 8, so register now. You may pay by credit card, check, or through a purchase order from your agency. The registration form is for the entire conference event and there are no separate forms or charges for IAER or AFB. If you wish to pay by check or purchase order, when you complete the online registration form you will be prompted to print the information page and send it to our Huntington, WV office.

The hotel room rate is $189 a night and is available until April 5, 2013. That rate is good from April 15 through 22 so come early and stay late to enjoy the location in the heart of downtown Chicago. To register, visit the hotel's online form.
