2016-7th annual PR LAUNCH – ANCA WORLD AUTISM FESTIVAL & Inaugural Trade Show 

ANCA -122Comments from attendees at the inaugural PR Launch: Paul Leighton I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and signed up for membership information and to volunteer for the trade show in October. I hope to check out the work of artists at the trade show and perhaps see some friends from the Vancouver Asperger Autism Union at future ANCA events. Peter It was nice to being invited to this event at theANCA -3 Chateau Granville Hotel. It was excellent presentation including video taped greetings from around the world. The hors d’oeuvres were great. Loved the lobster sandwiches! It was nice to see Nick (aka Douglas), Samuel (aka Tim) and Paul (aka Paul) from our meetup group. I kept my eye out for Lechman but I never spotted him during the evening. These type of venues are an excellent opportunities to meet others in the autism community in a low stress environment. I signed up for the free membership and I’m looking forward to hearing about up coming events hosted by ANCA.
