SILC Congress 2016
The Path Forward to Greater Independence
Saturday, January 16 – Tuesday, January 19
Sheraton Downtown Phoenix Hotel
Welcome to SILC Congress 2016, hosted by the Arizona Statewide Independent Living Council. SILC Congress brings together executive directors, staff, council members and others from state independent living councils and the IL movement. The conference offers opportunities for learning about issues impacting SILCs, the sharing of ideas and information and provides ample opportunities for you to network with your colleagues.
The theme for SILC Congress 2016 is The Path Forward to Greater Independence. This theme reflects the opportunities for SILCs and the Independent Living community as a result of the reauthorization of the Rehabilitation Act. SILCs will also be heavily involved in the development of their new State Plans for Independent Living as the conference convenes. General Sessions and highly focused workshops will provide attendees with the information and tools they will need to successfully guide their organizations forward.
This year, SILC Congress will begin on Saturday, January 16 and conclude on Tuesday, January 19. Our host hotel will be the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix, located in the heart of the city. Restaurants, entertainment, shopping and sports are just steps from this beautiful facility.
