Our conference is the leading event for self-advocates, family members, community service providers, direct support professionals, regional center professionals, policymakers, and anyone else who wants to use public policy to build a better today and tomorrow for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Please join us to expand your knowledge of diverse, relevant topics that have direct current and future implications for people in our community. 

This year we will explore the theme MOVING INTO THE FUTURE. We will focus on inclusive education, integrated housing, transformation of services and supports, civil rights & protections, community organizing, outreach to underserved communities, health care changes, competitive integrated employment, and much more.

Hear From Former Attendees

"I found The Arc's Policy Conference to be incredibly informative, not just in showcasing the existing policies that nonprofit leaders need to be aware of, but also in looking to the future in promoting diverse, inclusive and accessible communities. I've stayed connected with many people I met at the conference and have built great relationships in furthering the work we share in."     - Abby Yim, Executive Director, Integrated Community Services - San Rafael

"The conference gives me a chance to bond with others who share a similar goal, share information, and develop skills to become an effective advocate for my daughter’s rights and the rights of all people with DD/ID." - Sandy Waterbury - Ventura - Parent
