Sometimes we have to balance what accessibility services we can offer based on budget, location and staff against what our attendees need. What can you do if your chosen facility isn't access friendly? How can you provide mobility, visual, hearing and other services on a tight budget? What if one of your services is beneficial to one segment of attendees but is disadvantageous to others? What exactly is "Reasonable Accommodation" with concerns to accessibility at conventions and what are we legally obligated to provide? A compendium of successes/failures and best/worst practices will be presented.


Workshops and Panels listed as “Streaming” will be in our online panel room. While the video will be trained on the panelists, audio will cover everyone. By attending this workshop or panel you agree to consent to having your voice and possibly your likeness broadcast online.
