CEC 2017 - Boston


CEC's Convention Page 
Visit this page for up-to-the-minute information! 

The work has already begun for Boston 2017!  My Co-Chair, Claudia Renaldi and I are working to develop the Program with the help of the PAC.  This convention will be much closer to Pennsylvania.  Plan your car pool partners now!  

 Here is some info on our Keynote Speaker!!!

Rick Guidotti, an award-winning photographer who uses the visual arts to change people’s perception of beauty, will join the CEC community as the Opening General Session Keynote Speaker at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

What is beauty? As a fashion photographer, Guidotti was constantly being told what to think was beautiful, but one day
he realized that beauty was all around him—in every person in different ways. This realization led him to create the nonprofit organization, Positive Exposure.

Through Positive Exposure, Guidotti works to change the way that society sees people living with genetic, physical, intellectual, and behavioral differences through photography. Rather than capturing a victimizing image, Guidotti captures images that empower the subjects. With these photographs, the organization works to promote and advocate for a more inclusive, compassionate world where diversities are celebrated. Learn more about Guidotti and his work with Positive Exposure.

We have some new and exciting features to this year's convention.  We have 30 hours of sessions devoted entirely to Classroom Teachers!  Claudia and I are very excited about this and hope that you will attend these sessions! We have some important and serious topics to discuss as well.  There will be legal sessions, updates from Washington and some very special strands featuring topics such as the maltreatment of individuals with special needs.  Boston is a great city and we hope that you will make the trip up to see us!
