Do you know what the new revisions to the ADA mean to you?  Get ready to attend this event!

It’s finally happening - the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are implementing revised regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act.  These changes are significant and apply to employers, state and local governments, and public and private entities.  Many of the new regulations became effective March 15, 2011, and others take effect next year.  Are you ready?

What’s Changing?

The “definition of disability” changes and expands under the new ADA Amendments Act.  Under the new amendments, even more people could be protected by the ADA.  New definitions and rules issued by the U.S. Department of Justice apply to service animals, mobility devices, web-based information, audio and video description, video remote interpreting, hotel services, ticketing, recreation facilities, related accommodations, and more.  Are you ready?

Who should attend:

Disability service providers, advocates, vocational counselors, employment specialists, employers, business operators, ADA Coordinators, ADRC/LTC providers, post secondary transition specialists, and public agency professionals should be aware and ready for these new rules and protections under the ADA. 

Attend this conference to hear from national experts who will zero in on key provisions, timelines, how to access resources, and what to expect down the road. The discussions will also provide comparisons to Wisconsin laws and what takes precedence over what.
