Did you know that 55% of the delegates here at the 2012 NAD Conference are first-timers? This week has been an eye-opening experience for everybody, working with multiple perspectives and diverse backgrounds! Today, on Wednesday July 4th, the fourth session of the Council of Representatives was held. A proposal was carried to have an Open Forum for all NAD members this afternoon, to ensure individual members could provide further input on priority proposals.
Today was the first session of the Miss Deaf America preliminaries! The action-packed Preliminary I was held at the Hyatt Regency South from noon to 2 pm. Remember, this year will be the 40th annual- and the very last- Miss Deaf America competition- so watch the remaining two preliminaries before the Finals and Live Auction on Friday night!
The Council of Representatives has met three times during the National Association of the Deaf Conference, and will have two more meetings before the week is out!
We are thrilled to announce that for the first time ever, a NAD Conference event will be streamed live online! Wednesday’s plenary session with Dr. Ronald Stern will be available for the world to view with live captioning on the NAD website.
For one night at least, everybody can be a fan of the Louisville Bats!
The NAD is pleased to offer free wireless internet
