  • Annual Awards Reception Will Salute Leaders And Bring the Community Together June 11

    By Brewster Thackeray, ECNV Executive Director  Last year’s ECNV Annual Awards Reception was a highlight of my first year with ECNV, and I’m glad we decided to massage the successful recipe in 2015. Seeing so many advocates and community members support independent living keeps the energy of our movement and our office going. This year’s event is going to be one to remember. We are celebrating three important disability milestones: the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the 30th Anniversary of the Virginians with Disabilities Act, and the 50th Anniversary of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. To top it all off, we are honored to have Virginia State Senator Toddy Puller accept the ECNV Lifetime Achievement Award for her years of service representing the disability community.
