Crimson Tide Coach to Headline the 2016 Conference
Former Alabama Crimson Tide head football coach Gene Stallings will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 DSAIA Annual Leadership Conference in Charlotte, NC. Stallings, who led the 1992 Crimson Tide to a national championship, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010. However, the Down syndrome community might know him better for a book he penned about his son with Down syndrome, Johnny, entitled Another Season

The conference schedule is now available for viewing and the Early Bird deadline to save an additional $100 off registration is November 1, 2015. To view the schedule, register for the event or to explore sponsorship options, visit the conference website
DSAIA Offers Opportunity for Conference Scholarships

Attending DSAIA is a fantastic opportunity for many Down syndrome organizations..some of which bring numerous attendees. But we realize that some group who have a small budget need the conference the most. And that is why we'd like to help those organizations (members and nonmembers) bring as many people as they can to this incredible event.

2016 Small-Group Scholarship Applicant Criteria:
  • Applicant must not have received a scholarship for the 2014 or 2015 DSAIA Leadership Conference;
  • Applicant must be a staff or board member from a Down syndrome organization with 5 or fewer employees, (not an industry partner or consultant member);
  • Only one applicant is allowed from each individual organization (more than one application can result in exclusion from consideration); and
  • Applicant's organization must have a 2015 budget of $50,000 or less or show extenuating circumstances.
