During the opening session, our emcees will take a look at the history of CEC and its impact on the field and on the world. Emcees Bill Bogdan (past president, 1999-2000) and Danielle Kovach (CEC President, 2022) will share part of our history and accomplishments. The evening will conclude with a fireside chat with disability advocate Judy Heumann and an opening celebration/party.
