Amputee Coalition National Conference in 2021

Last year the conference was cancelled due to Covid but they did offer it virtually, with several presentations from excellent speakers. It was interactive so that you could meet and talk to other amputees on a variety of topics as well as social hours to get to know them better. While it was very successful considering the change in format, it certainly wasn’t the same as being there in person. Over a thousand folks attended and it did give people who otherwise couldn’t attend an an person conference because of travel costs and other expenses incurred while being away.
Well, good news! This year, they are planning on holding the conference using a hybrid model with both in person attendance as well as a virtual format again. This year the conference is from September 29-October 2 in Shaumburg, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). Scholarships are available to those who are new amputees or those who have never attended a conference before.
