For over 25 years the National Association of ADA Coordinators has brought ADA coordinators together, providing a forum for the most up-to-date information on ADA issues and enforcement. Through different administrations, Republican and Democratic, from George H.W. Bush to Bill Clinton to George W. Bush to Barack Obama to Donald Trump, NAADAC has been your professional training organization for the ADA.
Now, as it celebrates its 26th anniversary, NAADAC continues its role.
The Administration is still working to fill numerous positions in the Federal government. So far rumors and uncertainty abound about how it will fulfill its ADA responsibilities. Will there be a new approach to ADA enforcement? Will there be new statutes, regulations or changes to existing rules? Amid the uncertainty, you can turn to NAADAC and its faculty of nationally recognized experts for practical, understandable guidance.
So, join us for our Spring 2018 Conference in Tampa, and you’ll find that NAADAC will be your helping hand.
