Hi All,

Remember: Application deadline is 9/1/18 for the Ron Stewart Professional Development Award. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Hello all,

At the 2017 Accessing Higher Ground Conference, the ATHEN membership approved the Ron Stewart Professional Development Award in honor of one of the founding members of ATHEN.

In 2002, Ron Stewart helped to start the Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN) while continuing to work in the field of access technology. The Ron Stewart Professional Development Award supports Ron's mission to nurture access technology professionals in higher education. To accomplish this, the Award will support a first-time attendee in attending the Accessing Higher Ground conference.

The Award includes:
- Standard Main Conference Registration Package for 2018 Accessing Higher Ground Conference. Includes all workshops, Wednesday to Friday (keynote dinner not included).
- Hotel accommodations for the conference (up to 3 nights) at the official conference hotel, Westin Westminster.
- Professional Membership in ATHEN for 1 year.

The Award is open to those who:
- Have never attended the Accessing Higher Ground conference.
- Are currently employed at a post-secondary institution in the field of access technology.
