Registration is Now Open
MLV Foundation is proud to be hosting our second MOKA Conference for the Blind. MOKA is an acronym for Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas. The dates for this conference are May 28-30, 2024. This four-state area conference will be held at the beautiful University Plaza Hotel, 333 S. John Q. Hammons Parkway, Springfield, MO.
In the four-state region, there are over 450,000 blind or visually impaired. The blind and visually impaired often find themselves isolated. MLV Foundation Inc hopes to help meet the social and emotional needs of this under-served population and to help give them purpose and flourish.
There are lots of outstanding organizations within our four-state area (and beyond) to help the blind community. Many of these may be unknown to those who are newly blind and our conference will help to inform them what is here in our own backyard, as well as nationally.
We have added a full additional day to the schedule, a bigger exhibitor hall, more breakout sessions, and more fun activities and time to be able to connect with others. We will close out the conference with a fundraiser dinner and concert for the MLV Foundation. Registration is now open. We will again offer a Super Early Bird Registration Rate that will end August 31st, and Early Bird Registration, that will end November 30th. So, if you want to save a little money, be sure to get your registration in early.
