FYI.. LONG, but didn't want to accidentally snip important attendance details..

Also :: Noticed they mention videoconferencing and say there are
limited positions available for that alternative..

If anyone attends, I would LOVE to hear how it went..

Peace and best wishes from North Georgia..

Subject: Section 508 Training Events

CAP would like to remind you about the following Section 508 Events:

When: Friday September 26, 2008; 9AM to 4PM

Where: U.S. Census Bureau Conference Center

4600 Silver Hill Road, Suitland, MD 20746

Conveniently located at the Suitland Metro Station on the Green Line.

Driving directions are at: http://www.census.gov/main/www/cbmaps.html

Why: This is an event organized by the U.S. Access Board as part of our
commitment to provide training and technical assistance on Section 508.

Who is invited: This is open to everyone: federal employees,
contractors, industry, advocacy organizations and consumers.

Cost: The training is provided free of charge. However, you are
responsible for paying for your lunch and refreshments, available at the
cafeteria within the building. Remember to bring your own pen and paper
or note taking technology.

What can I expect?  The training will devote several hours in the
morning to review many of the specific Section 508 Standards.  The
afternoon will address testing, e-learning, agency implementation, the
504-508 connection, and other issues. There will be several Q&A periods
to encourage discussion.  The trainers will represent multiple federal
agencies and departments. Audio visual presentations will be used and
will be available in electronic form upon request afterwards. We are not
planning to provide handouts.

Accommodations: Interpreting and CART services will be provided.
Requests for other accommodations should be made to the Census Bureau
Disability Program Office as soon as possible. Disability Program Office
staff can be reached at 301-763-4060, or via e-mail,
hrd.disability.program@census.gov.

Videoconferencing: The event will be broadcast to other locations
throughout the country; however, there are restrictions on the number of
connections available. Anyone interested in participating via
videoconference should provide their contact information, including
ISDN#, to the Census Bureau Disability Program Office,
hrd.disability.program@census.gov, at least one week prior to the event.


Registration: There is space for over 300 people in the room. Advance
registration is requested to help prevent going over that number.
Please preregister by sending an email stating the names of the people
coming and the organization with whom they are associated to David
Baquis: baquis@access-board.gov or you may call me with questions:
202-272-0013.  People who provide their email addresses will receive an
advance agenda.
