Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Cc Chairs for info,

The Director is pleased to announce the recharter of the Accessible 
Platform Architectures Working Group:
   https://www.w3.org/2021/08/apa-wg-charter.html

The group is chartered through 31 July 2023.

The mission of the Accessible Platform Architectures Working Group is to 
ensure W3C specifications provide support for accessibility to people 
with disabilities. The group advances this mission through review of W3C 
specifications, development of new specifications and technical support 
materials, collaboration with other Working Groups, and coordination of 
harmonized accessibility strategies within W3C.

Please use the following form to have your organization join the group. 
The form will also instruct you how to nominate participants:
   https://www.w3.org/groups/wg/apa/join

If your organization is currently in the group, please note that you 
will need to have it re-join the group as the new charter is now 
operating under the revised 2020 Patent Policy. This Call for 
Participation triggers the start of the 45 days grace period. See:
   https://www.w3.org/2003/12/22-pp-faq.html#recharter

Please consider diversity when proposing people to participate in W3C 
groups. Representation from a wider group of people, especially people 
from under-represented groups, is vital for creating web standards that 
meet the needs of the wider web community.

The Working Group chairs are Becky Gibson (Invited Expert) and Janina 
Sajka (Invited Expert). Team Contacts are:

   Michael Cooper (0.30 FTE Primary TC [external funds])
   Ruoxi Ran (0.25 FTE for Personalization Semantics, Pronunciation, and 
AHR)
   Joshue O Connor (0.80 FTE for RQTF [external funds])
   Judy Brewer (0.10 FTE for RQTF [external funds])

More information about the Accessible Platform Architectures Working 
Group can be found on its homepage:
