Voices for Access

2021 WACAC Annual Conference

May 18 – 20, 2021

Registered attendees can find all of the recorded sessions on the original conference site under each original session link. Please check your email for the site link. NOTE: These recordings will only be accessible on this site for 30 days.

We are excited to offer the Annual Conference this year from May 18th – May 20th. We will be coming to you this year through your computer screens. Our theme, Voices for Access, has been central in our planning this year. We have offered almost 100 scholarships to our colleagues, kept a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion when choosing our sessions, and being virtual this year means more folks will be able to attend. We look forward to seeing everyone soon. You can read our presidential welcome and more about our keynote here.
