Recognizing Individuals and Organizations for Advocacy, Innovation, and Service
It is time again for TDI to recognize outstanding individuals and corporations that have helped to shape an accessible world for people who are deaf and hard of hearing. We are formally inviting you to join us for lunch and help give kudos for those receiving recognition at the 22nd Biennial Conference of Telecommunications for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. in North Bethesda, Maryland.
Every two years, TDI takes the time to recognize individuals, companies, and organizations that have made a significant impact on telecommunications, media and information technology access. The four most recent winners for each award are listed below for your reference. The complete list of past winners can be found in the Blue Pages of the TDI Blue Book, or on our website.
The Conference takes place at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, MD, just across the street from the White Flint Metro Station. On Saturday, July 29, from 11:45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., TDI will be hosting the TDI Awards Luncheon in the Grand Ballroom.
We would absolutely love for you to come help TDI celebrate their achievements and contributions that have given us remarkable advances in accessibility over the years. Now is your chance to register to attend the TDI Biennial Conference in Bethesda, Maryland, so you can help us congratulate the award recipients!
We would be honored if you will join us for the TDI Awards Luncheon at the Conference on July 29. It cost $50.00 per person to attend the luncheon, and you need not register for the Conference to attend the luncheon. The event includes a wonderful lunch, supporting those receiving accolades, and socializing with many attendees. This opportunity is definitely a bargain and not to be missed! You can register here:
Without further ado, please join us in congratulating the recipients of the 2017 TDI Biennial Awards:
Thank you for helping us to recognize those who deserve recognition! While we strongly encourage you to attend the full conference, if you prefer to only attend the TDI Award Luncheon, you absolutely can! Don’t forget, July 29 is Consumer’s Day, so all are welcome to attend, and do not need to register to experience what the TDI has to offer for the day.
In order for us to know how many that will join us for this event, while not required, we would appreciate a RSVP from you on whether you can join us or not. The award recipients will deeply appreciate having your support with your presence there.
This Conference offers you and others a wonderful three-day’s experience and opportunities for personal/professional development. You learn about the latest in public policy for disability access, to network with others from with business and government, and to visit the exhibits that give you the latest information and hands-on experience with accessible products and services. You meet the industry leaders that have worked with TDI and its sister consumer groups in the last two years on access topics such as relay services, emergency communications, wireless communications and information, and captioning of video programming.
