From the U.S. Access Board:

The next webinar in the Board's monthly series takes place Nov. 1 from 2:30 – 4 (ET) and will cover access to historic buildings and facilities. The session will focus on addressing accessibility in planned alterations to qualified historic facilities and review permitted exceptions where State Historic Preservation officials determine that compliance would threaten or destroy a facility’s historic significance.

The following webinar, to be held Dec. 6, 2:30 - 4 (ET), will provide an overview and update on new accessibility standards the Board is developing for medical diagnostic equipment.

The webinar series is made available in cooperation with the ADA National Network. For more information, including registration instructions, visit here. Questions for webinars can be submitted in advance through this website. Archived copies of previous Board webinars are also available on the site.
