The Arc of Greater Pittsburgh and Achieva are playing host to the National Arc of the US Convention November 12 through the 14th.
The organization helps people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
About six hundred from around the country will attend the conference, titled, "Inspiring Innovation: With Adversity Comes Opportunity."
Topics to be covered include Civil Rights for People with Disabilities and Practices in Preventive Care for People with Disabilities.
In the organization's fifty-five year history, Pittsburgh has never hosted the convention.
