1,300 Conferees Expected At NISH National Training and Achievement Conference

March 04, 2008

NISH, a national nonprofit agency whose mission is to create employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities by securing federal contracts through the AbilityOne Program, has announced that more than 1,300 attendees, including federal government procurement and requiring officials and representatives from hundreds of AbilityOne-affiliated nonprofit agencies, are expected to attend the 2008 NISH National Training and Achievement Conference to be held at The West Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in Los Angeles, California from April 14-16, 2008.
 
The NISH annual conference theme focuses on performance excellence and offers federal government officials and other attendees the opportunity to attend training sessions and network with others in the disability community who primarily work through the AbilityOne Program, a federal government program that creates employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities through federal contracts for services and products. More than 70 training sessions will be conducted geared toward performance excellence. The NISH National Awards Program Banquet, held in conjunction with the conference, will honor more than 20 award recipients for their outstanding achievements and support of the AbilityOne Program.
 
The conference tracks include the AbilityOne Program, Federal Government, Business Development, Services, Products, Quality, Leadership and Workforce Development. Continuing education credits are available through a full-day program on performance-based service contracting.
 
The conference kicks off with an Opening Session featuring keynote speaker Sherry Lansing, Founder and Chair of the Sherry Lansing Foundation and former chair of the Motion Picture Group of Paramount Pictures (News - Alert) from 1992 to 2005. In this position, she oversaw the release of more than 200 films, including Academy Award winners Forrest Gump, Braveheart, and Titantic. She was also the first woman to serve as President of Production at 20th Century Fox. The conference closes with an evening of recognition and salute to the 2007 NISH National Awards Program recipients.
 
The AbilityOne Program is the largest single source of employment for people who are blind or have other severe disabilities in the U.S. More than 600 participating nonprofit organizations employ these individuals and provide quality goods and services to the federal government at a fair price.
