Make All Your Events Accessible to All People

A Highlight from the upcoming NAGC Communications School.  

Don’t miss out on this in-depth look at successfully creating events accessible to all. From sign language interpreters to audio description, from restrooms to meetings rooms, presenter Betty Siegel of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will lead you through the steps. This will be a practical and commonsense approach to the elements and components to be considered to make any event accessible to participants with disabilities. From beginning to end, your next event will be more welcoming of and encourage participation from individuals with disabilities. “A Brief ‘How-To’—Developing Accessible Events” will be held April 18 at 10 a.m. at the 2013 NAGC Communications School, April 17-19, at the Pentagon City Sheraton in Arlington, Va.
