Propose a Priority

The NAD Board of Directors welcomes submissions from individual members for proposed priorities for the next two years (2016-2018). These tend to be issues-oriented in nature, with focus on advocacy issues of importance that can be accomplished within a two-year timeframe. Proposed priorities will be presented to and voted upon by individual and affiliate members (General Forum); the top 20 proposals will then be narrowed down to the top five priorities for 2016-2018 by vote of official delegates (Council of Representatives) at the 53rd Biennial NAD Conference. The NAD Board of Directors will follow up on the top five priorities during 2016-2018.

Individuals may submit via American Sign Language (ASL) or English.  For individuals who submit their proposed priorities via ASL, you can video record yourself and upload your video to any online video site (YouTube, Vimeo, etc) and share the link(s) in the form provided below.

One form must be submitted for each priority proposal; multiple forms may be submitted.

Deadline: Sunday, May 22, 2016.  Late or incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
