Section 508 – A Celebration of Twenty Years

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the initial enforcement of the Section 508 Standards. This session will showcase the work of influential accessibility professionals who developed and implemented the original 508 Standards. The session will also highlight the impact the standards have had on the accessibility of information and communication technology in the United States and around the world.

Invited speakers include David Capozzi, former Executive Director of the U.S. Access Board (retired); Bill Peterson, Department of Homeland Security (retired); Terry Weaver, General Services Administration (retired); John Sullivan, General Services Administration; and Sachin Pavithran, Executive Director of the U.S. Access Board. To allow more time for the speakers, there will be no live question and answer session, but registrants may submit questions in advance. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. Webinar attendees can receive a participation certificate.
