ANCOR is sharing this announcement by the National Council on Disabilities (NCD) in case any of our Illinois members wish to attend and share public comment, given the Chicago location of the meeting. The full schedule for the day, address for the meeting and teleconference information are available in the link above.

As written by NDC:

“The Members of the National Council on Disability (NCD) will hold a quarterly business meeting and community forum on Monday, July 15, 2019, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Central Daylight Time), in Chicago, Illinois. Registration is not required. [Emphasis added by ANCOR.]


The Council will receive agency updates on policy projects, finance, governance, and other business. Following agency updates, the Council will receive panel presentations on complex rehabilitation acquisition; air transportation; annual required ethics training; a panel presentation on communication access; and a public comment session. Following unfinished business, the meeting will adjourn, to be followed by a public reception, providing attendees an opportunity to talk with presidentially and congressionally appointed Council Members and full-time professional staff from the National Council on Disability. Following the reception, an information session on Achieving A Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts will occur.”
