Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) calls on state and local governments to ensure that qualified individuals with physical and mental disabilities are afforded equal opportunity to participate in those programs, services and activities offered by state and local governments.
Successful ADA coordination and implementation requires a strong commitment from government leaders to ensure that our programs, services and activities are readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. This commitment involves ensuring that those officials responsible for ADA compliance possess the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to be successful in their duties.
Presenters from the United States Access Board, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), ADA One, LLC, State of Georgia and local county government and the University System of Georgia will provide the latest information on the ADA regulations, accessibility standards, implementation strategies, and best practices for state and local governments.
This conference is intended for state and local government agency ADA Coordinators, program officials, facility administrators, human resources professionals, and other individuals with ADA compliance responsibilities under title II. Our goal is to make sure participants get useful information that is applicable to their work, and the session schedule is designed to meet the needs of attendees from these varied occupations and backgrounds.
