Event Details

 

 Join Us in Houston, Texas for an ADA Roundtable Discussion!

 

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law enacted in 1990. Under the ADA every public entity is required to develop a comprehensive ADA Transition Plan.

Now, more than ever, it is important to understand all that is required to develop your ADA plan. Title II agencies across the United States are facing an avalanche of private litigation along with Department of Justice (DOJ) reviews.

 

 


 

FEDERAL FUNDING COULD BE AT RISK!

Over the past years, the DOJ has drastically increased reviews of agencies under the ADA, meticulously examining all programs, services and activities as well as streets and buildings. Today, there is little sign that this will let up anytime soon. As a result, Federal funding is at risk for entities which are not fully compliant under the ADA.

Accessology's mission is to help businesses, facilities, and Title II entities remove barriers so that everyone has equal access and opportunities. Founded in 1990, Accessology is a nationally recognized vanguard in the industry, committed to helping Title II entities develop their Transition Plans to ensure compliance. Working with each entity to evaluate programs, services and activites; avoid timely and costly litigation; and improve their environment for everyone.

An ADA Roundtable brings ADA Coordinators along with all departments within a public entity to the table to learn and to discuss the requirements of a comprehensive ADA Transition Plan.

 

 

This 3 hour presentation will be an overall discussion of what an ADA Transition plan is, what needs to be included, how to get started if it hasn’t been done before and how to update an older version. The presenters have broken this process into steps to get agencies going in the right direction. 

 

 


 

 

This ADA Roundtable Discussion is FREE.

However, in order to accommodate everyone who would like to attend, we are asking each person who plans on coming to please register in advance. Feel free to share this event with those you feel would benefit from this discussion.
