Heroes Unite! AAC in the Cloud Pre-conference FUN!!

Jun 20, 2018

AAC in the Cloud is just days away. This free online AAC conference is open to EVERYONE in the AAC community and aims to further augmentative communication knowledge and practices by sharing them freely.

Our theme this year is "Heroes Unite!" and we hope to recognize AAC heroes from the community as well as to build the superpowers of AAC users, families, and supporters through this event.

But you don't have to wait until June 26 to start getting into the excitement of AAC in the Cloud. There are several pre-conference events going on NOW!

  1. Join the pre-conference conversation by jumping into the Slack chat rooms relating to AAC in the Cloud. You can learn a bit more about these AAC conference chats here.

  2. NEW!! We've just opened a contest to create a Super Hero Mask. Work with your AAC communicator, get creative, and have fun! [Print a mask here to get started](https://drive.google.com/file/d/15mtuu7EMpa--b-0MtLYrtHTv1-JxsyoO/view?usp=sharing" target="_blank). Once you've completed your mask, take a picture of someone wearing it and submit that image for a chance to win the contest. You can post your picture on our AAC conference Facebook page to enter OR email it to melissa@mycoughrop.com

  3. If masks are not your thing, we'd love to have you create an AAC themed superhero logo. Think Bat Symbol or Green Lantern ring. Submit your creation on our AAC conference Facebook page or email it to melissa@mycoughdrop.com for a chance to win a prize package.

  4. You can also submit the story of YOUR AAC hero. These stories will be shared to encourage and inspire others and to spread the word about the power of AAC. Get a glimpse at a few AMAZING stories here, and watch our social media channels for more. Submit your AAC Hero Story here.

We hope you'll join us for AAC in the Cloud June 26-27, but we'd love to rub shoulders with you even before the presentations begin. We hope you'll let AAC be a big part of your summer!
