Event Details

Welcome

Thanks, for coming to register for Accessibility Camp DC, on October 13, 2012.

Date and Location

We are going to have Accessibility Camp DC at the Martin Luther King Library here in Washington, DC, on October 13, 2012, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Check-in will begin at 9:30 AM once library opens.

The Martin Luther King  (MLK) Jr. Memorial Library is located at:

901 G St NW, Room 215
Washington, DC 20001-4531

General Overview

We are still in the major planning stage for this event and are still looking for volunteers and sponsors. Please e-mail us at info@AccessibilityCampDC.org, if you would like to help or sponsor this event.

This event is going to be run like a typical BarCamp, which is an un-conference, where the people attending are the speakers, please come with a talk or discussion in mind.

Registration for this FREE event to attendees will open on Wednesday August 24, 2011, at noon eastern.

The reason we are holding off opening registration for all the tickets (150) is we are trying to make sure people don't just sign-up to get a spot not knowing what their schedule is going to be in two months and then not show up.

Please follow http://www.twitter.com/AccessCampDC to know what is going on and when registration and other points of interest are occurring.

Hotel Information

For those coming from out of town I have some information on hotels in the Washington, DC area over near me. I'm doing this so it is easier for me to help people get around if I can. I'm also looking into having a cookout/wine event at my place Sunday afternoon for those from out of town.

If you have any other hotel questions just get in contact with me. Most of these hotels are less than a half mile from the metro (DC's subway).
