The Memphis Advisory Council for Citizens with Disabilities (MACCD), in partnership with Medtronic, and the Workforce Investment Network (WIN) will hold a Disability Summit and Job Fair for Veterans and persons with disabilities. This event will provide information and resources for people and family members who have recently acquired a disability. 

Our keynote speakers will discuss the challenges, obstacles, and what their journey has been like since they or their family member acquired a disability, and will provide practical tips to get you started.  Registered attendees will also be able to participate in break-out sessions, talk with potential employers at the Job Fair, and network with local resources in the community. 

As seating is limited, we are requiring all attendees to preregister for this event.  For more information please contact: Christina Clift at (901) 726-6404 Ext. 108 Veronica McKinney at (901) 438-0412, or Phyllis Brunson at (901) 636-7940.
