Countdown to the Event

About The Event & NCE

The NCE Summer Leadership Institute, hosted by The Arc and the National Conference of Executives of The Arc (NCE), unites executives, leaders, and professionals from across the disability sector in pursuit of a shared mission. The Summer Leadership Institute’s goal is for everyone to work better and smarter towards a shared purpose: ensuring people with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) achieve their full civil and human rights and are fully included in their communities.

Attendees engage in constructive dialogue and discussion, gain valuable knowledge of current issues facing the disability community, and receive educational materials to help further develop and hone their professional skills.

This year’s event focuses heavily on the most pressing issues in the disability community, including COVID-19 vaccination, the American Rescue Plan, home and community-based service policy developments, the DSP workforce crisis, and much more.

Can’t attend but still want to support our work? Any donations are appreciated if you’re able!


The pandemic is still disrupting businesses for the human services sector. Everything we know about delivering services to communities, fundraising, and managing staff has been tested in the past year. And even without a pandemic, the landscape of the disability sector is always changing.
