Event Details:
Title I (Employment), Title II (State and Local Governments), and Title III (Public Accommodations) of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) call on State and Local governments to ensure that qualified individuals with physical and mental disabilities are afforded equal access to successfully participate in those programs, services, and activities offered refraining from discrimination on the basis of an individual’s disabilities. Title II entities are unique, and they tend to have operations that fall under all three titles listed above, as they are governmental bodies that interview and employ individuals, serve members of the public, and provide housing, as well as medical and mental health services for some individuals.

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.

For this purpose, the State ADA Coordinator’s Office in collaborative partnership with the National Association of ADA Coordinators (NAADAC) is hosting a three-day ADA Conference: “The 2024 Virtual ADA Conference for State and Local Governments.”

This informative and engaging conference will feature presenters from the State of Georgia, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI), the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), Disability Rights Advocates (DRA), the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD), the University of Chicago Law School, the University of Southern California (USC) – Office for Equity, Equal Opportunity, and Title I, Accessible Web Design and Humanity Consideration Consultants, LLC who will provide the latest information on the ADA regulations, accessibility standards, implementation strategies, and best practices for State and local government entities.

Who should attend?

This FREE virtual conference is intended for State and local government agency ADA Coordinators, program officials, facility administrators, first responders, human resources professionals, higher education disability services providers, and other individuals with ADA compliance responsibilities under Title I and/or 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.
