Make All Your Events Accessible to All People

A Highlight from the upcoming NAGC Communications
School.

Don’t miss out on this in-depth look at
successfully creating events accessible to all. From sign language interpreters
to audio description, from restrooms to meetings rooms, presenter Betty Siegel
of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will lead you through the
steps. This will be a practical and commonsense approach to the elements and
components to be considered to make any event accessible to participants with
disabilities. From beginning to end, your next event will be more welcoming of
and encourage participation from individuals with disabilities. “A Brief
‘How-To’—Developing Accessible Events” will be held April 18 at 10 a.m. at the
