Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
ADA COORDINATORS: ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
January 26, 2017 2:00pm to 3:30pm
There is no charge for this session but registration is required.
An effective ADA Coordinator is critical to successful ADA implementation. However, the role and responsibilities of the ADA Coordinator are often both ill-defined and misunderstood. This session will clearly outline the functions of the ADA Coordinator position, the departments and community members the ADA Coordinator should interact with, and how the ADA Coordinator position should fit into the overall structure of a Title II entity.
Speaker: Sally Conway, Former Deputy Chief, Disability Rights Section, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice
