The Board will hold its annual town meeting in St. Louis this year in conjunction with the National ADA Symposium. Organized by the Great Plains ADA Center, the Symposium is a yearly three-day event covering various aspects of accessibility and the ADA. It also features an exhibit hall showcasing accessibility products and assistive technologies. All Symposium events, including the Board’s town meeting, will take place at the America’s Center.
The Board’s town meeting will take place May 12 from 12:30 – 3:00 and will be open to the general public. It will provide a forum for participants to give feedback and recommendations to the Board on aspects of accessibility of concern to them. A portion of this meeting will focus on discussion of airport accessibility which is the subject of a new Board outreach initiative. As part of the conference, the Board will conduct break-out sessions on public rights-of-way, recreation facilities, bathroom access, the ADA guidelines and the International Building Code, and information technology and e-government.
