Variety Family Conference Fall 2018
All are welcome to attend our inaugural Variety Family Conference! Part of the Emerson Resource Center, the Conference will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018.
Attendees will take part in discussions and educational sessions, as well as take the time to connect with, and learn from, one another. The keynote will be presented by Kathie Snow, a renowned speaker passionate about breaking down boundaries and stereotypes surrounding those with disabilities. Her keynote session topic will be “Disability is Natural.”
Breakout sessions will include “Advocating for Your Child,” also led by Kathie Snow, “Post-Secondary Options” (including academic and career choices) and “Financial and Community Resource Considerations.”
This one-day event will take place from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Eric P. Newman Center on the Washington University School of Medicine Campus. Breakfast and lunch will be provided! Due to space limitations, we, unfortunately, will not be able to provide child care for this event.
The Variety Family Conference is open to both Variety families and members of the St. Louis community, however, Variety families will be given priority registration starting July 16. Registration will then be open to other members of the community starting August 15. If you are not a member of a Variety family, you may apply as soon as registration is open on July 16, but your registration will not be processed until August 15.
You may register by filling out the online form below and sending your $25 registration fee (per attendee) in the form of a check to Variety St. Louis. The registration form, and $25 registration fee, is for one attendee only. If you would like to register more than one attendee, please submit a form and fee for each person in your party. The fees will be returned to Variety families and students (who present a valid school ID) at the conference – all other attendees’ fees will help defray the cost of the conference**.
We hope to see you on September 15!
