#AdvoCon2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

Our annual conference is going virtual!

AdvoCon is a gathering of families of children and youth with disabilities and complex learners, and professionals who work with them.

September 17th to 23rd, 2020, over 150 attendees from around BC will gather virtually for the: 

BCEdAccess Society’s Annual Conference

AdvoCon2020: Foundations of Education Advocacy

BCEdAccess’ Annual Advocacy Conference is always well-attended by parents and guardians, self-advocates, teachers, school trustees, educational assistants, psychologists, principals, inclusion agency representatives, and other professionals. Why? Attendees learn practical information, earn professional development credits, and interact and network with peers, mentors, and sponsors. 

Our 2020 event will have a broader attendee reach, as a virtual event is accessible to more individuals. While we are still in the process of confirming topics and speakers, we have confirmed the following topics: Human Rights, IEPs, the appeals process, mental health, disability and sexuality, standards of practice, and more.

“Every student deserves equitable access to high quality education. The BCEdAccess Society are inspirational advocates who do a great service for children in B.C.” Hon. Rob Fleming, BC Minister of Education

As a non-profit organization led by volunteers, we look to our community to support this annual event. This is a great opportunity to reach our audience and let them know that you share their values. We welcome financial and in-kind contributions from like-minded and supportive organizations.

Current sponsors: Inclusion BC, Family Support Institute of BC, BC Teacher’s Federation, and Tradeable Bits – thank you!
