The ADA at 25:
Creating Accessible Cities and Towns

The Monon Center in Carmel, Indiana
It’s 2015! Do you know where your ADA transition plan and self-evaluation are? Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act required administrative actions including completion of a self-evaluation and development of a transition plan for barrier removal. Twenty-five years into the federal law, many municipalities have completed these tasks. But many still lag behind in ADA compliance.
The purpose of this one-day training event is to bring officials and key personnel up to speed on ADA Title II compliance issues for cities and towns. We will discuss key principles, litigation trends and emerging best practices. As we are quickly approaching the July 26 anniversary, municipalities will be encouraged to recommit to the spirit and intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Attendees will receive practical guidance for revisiting your ADA transition plans, re-evaluating your policies and procedures, and setting new priorities to create greater access for people with disabilities. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from instructor Jennifer Skulski, one of the national experts on Title II implementation, while engaging with colleagues from around the state.
Date: Tuesday, May 19 from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm
