Show your commitment to the ADA - Pledge On!

ADA Audio Conference Series

Participating in the Audio Conference can support professional development of an individual, an entire department or an entire agency for less cost than sending a staff member to a comparable training event.

We encourage entities to invite individuals, co-workers, or community partners, to participate at your site and increase participation. Site coordinators can use the time following each session to debrief on the subject, facilitate discussion of their agency's ADA compliance program and dialogue "where do we go from here?" to improve the agency's response to the ADA.

Entities hosting a site for several participants who are using only one service such as the telephone or streaming audio may offer a second format as an accommodation to the group's needs. We realize that there is a chance that someone will need the accommodation of real-time captioning to the telephone format to be able to participate at that site. We will honor the request for an accommodation in that situation and provide access to the real-time captioning for that site at no charge, given that they have already registered for one of the other services (telephone or streaming audio) and made the request for the accommodation. You can access the Reasonable Accommodation form from your Account Manager.

Program Format

Each session is scheduled from 1:00-2:30PM CST (90 minutes), and requires pre-registration.  You can participate in each session using any of the following services:
