AFP recently announced that the 2011 Summit will be held November 17-19, 2011 at National Harbor, located just outside Washington DC in National Harbor Maryland.
Just minutes outside of Washington, DC, the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center offers proximity to airports, entertainment, restaurants and Washington-area sight seeing.
Over 1500 attendees are expected to gather together to plan, organize and share best practices that will lead to a substantial increase in the number of people with developmental disabilities in integrated employment. Innovative program design will ensure that the work completed in Washington will have a lasting impact on our society.

We want to work
Employment is important for people with disabilities because we want to work, make money and accomplish our goals and aspirations. When we work, we’re contributing valuable skills to our communities. AFP’s focus on employment for people with disabilities will have the nation and our states understand the importance of employment, freedom, justice and equality.
