Conference Registration and Hotel Information
The Associationís Fall 2013 ADA National Conference is a must for those involved in making the
ADA work in employment, higher education, access to facilities, and other programs and activities
for those responsible for Title I (employment), Title II (state and local governments), and/or Title
III (public accommodations) of the ADA.
The Fall 2013 conference, with a faculty from the ADA enforcing agencies including DOJ and the
EEOC, as well as other senior ADA professionals (attorneys, architects, experienced ADA
coordinators), is an excellent chance to discuss your questions and issues with those who have
implemented and enforced the ADA for many years. It is an opportunity to learn about recent
case law, hear about best practices, become aware of processes for implementation, and discover
how to prevent expensive litigation. You can also get to know other ADA coordinators and
compliance officers to help in your networking process.
Do you understand the revised Title I employment and GINA rules? Experts will guide you in
understanding the changes brought about by the ADA Amendment Act and recent case law, as
well as the challenges of the interactive process, reasonable accommodations, web accessibility,
and returning veterans' issues. Over four days of sessions, youíll also learn the basics and finer
points of the Department of Justiceís revised ADA Title II and III regulations from 2010 and how
to implement your responsibilities.
See the new National eNewsletter for our Fall 2013 ADA National Conference agenda and the
faculty. The Newsletter also contains twelve pages of informative ADA articles on important ADA
topics. Many of these topics will be covered in more detail at the conference.
The National Association of ADA Coordinators (Association), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded by a group of public and private sector employment and accessibility professionals in 1992. They saw the need to educate public and private entities in all aspects of the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The goal was to recognize and to demonstrate that it is much more valuable to educate about the ADA than to bear the costs of noncompliance litigation.
The Association works with the senior attorneys and representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to develop conferences dealing with all aspects of the ADA including the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008 (ADAAA).
With the new ADAAA and the anticipated new Rules and Standards, both the private and public sectors again need to focus on updating and training ADA Coordinators, executives, line managers and line supervisors to voluntarily comply. The Association provides training in the revised definition of disability, access, services and design issues, reasonable accommodation and modification issues, interplays between conduct/performance standards and the ADA, avoiding the growing issues of harassment and retaliation, effective communication and employer defenses. There is also training in practical solutions to such important and timely topics as emergency/safety procedures, returning veterans, Olmstead Act and psychiatric/behavioral disorders, Universal Design concepts, housing, medical, and the new DOT regulations associated with the new ADAAA.
"ADA, the Next Generation"
Order your own copy of the CD from the well-received and one-of-a-kind webinar on the NEW DOJ regulations now available for purchase.
Presented live in the fall of 2010, the seven-part webinar (over 11 hours of content) offers a comprehensive look at the long awaited ADA regulations from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). These are the first major revisions since the ADA was enacted. They bring sweeping changes for the next decades. This CD will be helpful and used for years to come.
The CD provides an overview of the changes in the DOJ's new September 15, 2010 regulations, the fine points about the policy-related provisions, and the details of the new accessibility standards, along with tips for transition to the March 2011 effective date and the March 2012 compliance date.
Unlike any other similar program of which we are aware, you hear the "official" view from DOJ's John Wodatch, along with the practical perspectives and insights from some the country's foremost and most experienced ADA experts, architects, and trainers.
