The Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action (DSAIA) Conference and National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) are thrilled to announce a collaboration between the DSAIA and NDSS National Buddy Walk® Organizer’s Conference. This first-ever collaboration will bring more education and leadership-growth opportunities for affiliate leaders, advocates and individuals dedicated to the Down syndrome community. In February 2017, Down syndrome affiliate leaders, whose organizations hold a Buddy Walk®, can attend both annual conferences during the same weekend in the same location for a reduced rate.

The dual-conference weekend will take place in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Westin Cincinnati from Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017 to Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017. The Buddy Walk® Conference will kick off the weekend on Thursday, Feb 23, followed by the multi-day DSAIA conference Friday, Feb. 24-26, with registration and pre-conference sessions beginning Feb. 23, 2017.

In addition to exclusive access to the information and new ideas shared at both conferences, attendees also will enjoy the benefit of conference registration fee savings. Individuals who register for both DSAIA and Buddy Walk® Conferences can save as much as $225 on their cost of registration. 

For example, those who register for the Buddy Walk® Conference can choose to add a One-Day pass for Friday for only $250 or stay for the entire DSAIA event at a savings of $200 (the DSAIA member rate). 

Attendees who register for the DSAIA event will be able to add the Buddy Walk® Conference at a 50% discount of $25.

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
