BI-ISIG Meetings

 BI-ISIG MEETINGS

 

BI-ISIG members gather face-to-face twice a year during the ACRM Mid-Year Meeting in the spring and the Annual Conference in the fall. Read on to learn about BI-ISIG activities and opportunities at these important events.

 

ACRM Annual Conference

Sheldon Berrol Memorial Chautauqua

The Sheldon Berrol Chautauqua is the BI-ISIG special annual venue in which we address timely and sometimes controversial issues. Named to honor Dr. Shelly Berrol’s famous “Let’s talk” invitation to his colleagues and friends, the Chautauqua was inaugurated in 1994 by John Banja and Larry Cervelli to explore topics that provoke questions of values, ethics, and humanism in brain injury rehabilitation, questions that reflected Shelly Berrol’s intellectual passions.
