National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) General Meeting on November 1st

On Sunday November 1st, 2020 the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) will be holding the NEADS General Meeting from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. EDT. We invite post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities, disabled student leaders and allies in our community to join us for an exciting agenda and an opportunity to contribute your voices to our work representing Canadian college, university and Cégep students with disabilities.
 
The NEADS General Meeting will feature a report from Margaret Lyons-MacFarlane, NEADS Chair and New Brunswick Director and other members of the NEADS Board and Staff will be available to contribute to the proceedings and answer your questions. We have also invited on-campus disabled students' groups and their coordinators from across Canada to deliver presentations on their programming and initiatives. There will be a report from our partner the Quebec Association for Equity and Inclusion in Post-Secondary Education (AQEIPS). And as NEADS is a member group of the Council of Canadians With Disabilities (CCD), there will also be a report from CCD on its work as the leading advocacy group of people with disabilities in Canada.
 
Real-time captioning and sign language interpretation will be offered, along with simultaneous English-French interpretation. Further, specific details of the agenda, along with a list of speakers and the organizations they represent will be available soon. In the meanwhile, please register for the NEADS General Meeting online on this page.
 
Hope to engage with you on November 1st!
 
Yours Sincerely,
