Andrew Imparato & Michael Gamel-McCormick
From the National Association of University Centers on Disabilities
Presenting “Advocating in Times of Change: What You Need to Know”
With more than 40 years of state and federal disability law, policy and advocacy experience between them, Andy Imparato and Michael Gamel-McCormick have seen many shifts in policy and administration, and know the lay of the land. Through the years, they have worked on issues related to education, health care, employment, and rural support — just to name a few. As if that’s not enough, both men bring passion and dedication to their work that only comes from being touched by disability in their own personal lives. This year’s keynote is a rare opportunity to learn from Andy and Michael as they share what they know about the shifts taking place in Washington that will impact disability issues at all levels. This presentation will focus on any changes coming down the pike in Federal laws that have anything to do with disability issues including ESSA, IDEA, ADA and ACA. These guys know their stuff, so bring your questions!
