Join over 300 leaders in the disability community for a chance to learn, get inspired, and network with program innovators, service visionaries, and reformers.

Fall Leadership Institute

The Fall 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 purpose: ensuring people with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) achieve their full civil and human rights and are fully included in their communities.

The Fall Leadership Institute is an intimate networking and professional development event designed to foster a community of mentorship amongst chapter leaders and staff. The event is filled with innovative presentations on the hottest topics in the disability and public service sectors.

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.

New this year, our Leadership Institute has moved to the fall so it can run in a back-to-back format with The Arc’s National Convention. It’s easier than ever to save on both events. You’ll leave energized and equipped to collaborate and meet uncertainty and change head-on!


The National Conference of Executives (NCE)

NCE is a dynamic peer membership organization of executive directors and management staff from The Arc’s nearly 600-chapter network and other disability organizations. NCE creates opportunities for exchanging ideas, providing training essential to professional development, and offering support and mentoring for successful leadership. Members work collaboratively to better serve their organizations and their constituents.

The Arc

The Arc is the largest national community-based organization advocating for and with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and serving them and their families. We work tirelessly to uphold our vision for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be valued members of their communities, with the opportunity to realize their full potential and a future that is secure.
