2017 Inter-Agency Accessibility Forum ePolicyWorks Online Dialogue
This year's Inter-Agency Accessibility Forum's theme was Transition to a New Standard. The forum held sessions around the three main topics: Development, Policy and Technical. As a follow-up to the forum, this dialogue will allow participants and others to continue the productive conversations that took place during the forum. After the online dialogue is closed, the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Labor Department's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), will analyze the submitted ideas and comments. We anticipate a second dialogue to help refine the analysis to help determine session topics and potential speakers for the 2018 forum.
We invite you to join our current dialogue with comments and ideas about the important issues related to the new 508 standards.
