The AFB Leadership Conference (AFBLC) aims to increase leadership capacity in order to create a world of no limits for people who are blind. We are committed to putting inclusion to work, which will be a major emphasis of our 2022 AFBLC.

The Helen Keller Achievement Awards Dinner, which takes place during the conference, recognizes the notable achievements of individuals and organizations that are leaders in improving the lives of people with disabilities. Past awardees include Amazon, Apple, Google, and JPMorgan Chase, as well as giants from the performing arts, including Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Patty Duke.

AFBLC provides a forum in which leaders from a variety of fields—including research, technology, education, corporations, health and government organizations—have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of best practices, refine leadership skills, identify inclusion practices that work, and share concerns and strategies. The Migel Medal, Corinne Kirchner Research Award, and Llura Gund Leadership Award will be presented at the AFB Leadership Conference.

The 2022 AFBLC will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Arlington, VA.
