Region 9 Path Project Symposium- March 4th

 

Region 9 Path Project Symposium
Saturday, March 4th, at Region 9, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Ron Lucey will be the featured speaker. He has a visual impairment and is the Executive Director of the Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities.  His message is that it is important to empower people with disabilities as soon as possible to they can transition effectively into a normal life. He is said to be inspirational, fun and informative!
There will be a breakout session for discussion with two panels, a parent panel and a panel compromised of young people with disabilities.

Lucey's perspective as a person with a vision disability has helped him effectively advocate for accessibility and the rights of Texans with disabilities. He served as an Austin city commissioner and as chair of the Austin Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities, providing accessibility policy recommendations to the City Council and Austin’s previous five mayors. His experience with the Austin Mayor’s Committee gives him a focused perspective to support the mayors’ and county committees through GCPD, as well as disability organizations throughout the state. Mr. Lucey comes with a wealth of knowledge on disability issues as well as effective leadership skills. In 2010, in recognition of his passion and commitment to achieving full inclusion of people with disabilities in the community, he was selected as the recipient of Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities Governor’s Trophy, the highest honor awarded in our Lex Frieden Employment Awards.
