[DC Idea Swap] Does My Association’s Website Need to Be ADA Accessible?

When:  Feb 25, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)
About the Session

Most association execs understand how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to meetings, certification exams, and online courses, but what about one of your key public spaces—your website?

Although applicability of the ADA to websites is not clear, there have been court cases where some are alleging that nonprofit and association websites must be accessible, including to blind or visually impaired persons and others - especially if that organization is in receipt of federal grant dollars.

Since the courts seem to be moving toward accessibility for all websites, what does your association need to do right now to become compliant? Join our speakers Jennifer Jackson, Partner, Whiteford Taylor Preston, LLC, and Adam Hostetter, Partner, FUSE Search for the DC Swap February 25 from 12noon to 1 p.m. to learn about the steps your association can take to be sure that your website is ADA compliant.
