As an organization that values inclusion and the full participation of all delegates, we’ll make every effort to accommodate accessibility requirements for delegates during the scheduled on-site convention activities. That includes providing real-time closed-captioning and ASL interpretation during convention events.

If any of your delegates require additional accessibility accommodations, please complete the accessibility section on the convention registration page. Please submit your request by November 4, 2022, as we cannot guarantee that we can meet your request after that date.
