July 22-25 (Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC)

NCIL is excited to open registration for our 2024 Annual Conference on Independent Living! The theme of NCIL’s 2024 Annual Conference is BACK TO THE FUTURE.

This summer, we will advocate together, unite as a movement, and fight against ableism and prejudice of all types.
