David Barton
Northwest ADA Center

If you work in an organization that contributes to the ever-popular state and community fairs, you may need to consider this question: How can you build a commitment to ensure that none of your customers, clients, or employees experience discrimination based on having a disability? 

David Barton will answer that question in the context of his experience working with the Alaska State Fair organizations in their efforts to improve accessibility, ultimately drawing in additional patrons and families increasing attendances. This course is specifically designed by the Northwest ADA Center to assist fair organizers and vendors to understand and improve their ADA compliance efforts for people with disabilities. The content was designed to help participants develop a basic understanding of their ADA compliance responsibilities, how to develop an accessibility improvement plan, and where to go for resources or questions when needed. Throughout the session, David will share some direct examples, practical advice, some best practices, tips, and lessons.

Credits: 1.5 CRC,1.5 ACTCP Elective, 1.5 ACVREP, or a Letter of Attendance
