Accessibility Accommodations
Share |

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the association and the division provide reasonable accommodations to registered participants in annual divisional meetings. The assessment of reasonable accommodations is based on the limitations manifested by a particular disability and may differ for each participant. The participant must request accommodations and disclose his or her disability before any accommodation can be implemented. All accommodations provided are based upon individual needs as reflected in documentation or information related to the participant's disability or functional limitations. Further documentation may be required to substantiate a request for accommodations. The association and the divisions hold accommodation requests and supporting documents confidential.

All requests must be made in writing to the executive director of the association and the secretary-treasurer of the relevant division at least one month in advance of the meeting.

Email requests are sufficient for the Eastern and Central Divisions. The Pacific Division specifically requires the submission of its Accommodation Request Form: PDF | DOC
