AHEAD 2008 Conference
Multiple Intersections

July 14 - 19
The Grand Sierra Resort
Reno, Nevada USA

AHEAD invites proposals for its thirty-first annual conference to be held in
Reno, Nevada, July 14-19, 2008. The Association provides opportunities for
professional development to those who work to assure usable, sustainable and
inclusive higher education environments for students, faculty, and staff
with disabilities and who believe society is ultimately enriched by

Exploring a new direction for AHEAD, conference sessions will be organized
under ten topical strands that are related to the overall conference theme.
While all submitted proposals must be addressed to one of the ten strands,
we have worked to develop broad strands that encourage innovative,
provocative proposals.

The topical strands include:

. The intersection between students with disabilities and disability
service centers

. The intersection between higher education and transition

. The intersection between disability and technology

. The intersection between disability and graduate/professional

. The intersection between disability and the academic curriculum

. The intersection between disability and the co-curriculum

. The intersection between disability and the policy environment

. The intersection between the disability service professional and
legal issues

. The intersection between disability and diversity

. The intersection between higher education and external forces

I hope you will take some time to review the Call for Proposals and consider
proposing a session. This year the deadline for submissions is November 5,
2007, so that program decisions can be made by January, 2008. Program
proposals must be submitted electronically. The Call for Proposals in its
entirety, along with the submission form, is available at

The 2008 Conference will also incorporate some new strategies aimed at both
improving accessibility of the conference for all attendees and responding
to environmental issues. Our intent is to enhance the use of technology and
preplanning to reduce the use of natural resources while assuring valuable
content is fully available. This move will involve the participation of all
presenters and is fully outlined in the Call for Proposals. We thank you in
advance for your assistance in reaching these goals.
We welcome your thoughts and proposals! To discuss possible ideas or other
Conference program matters, please feel contact either Richard Allegra,
AHEAD's Director of Professional Development, at mailto:Richard at ahead.org or

We look forward to hearing from you,

Carol Funckes, President
