Dear WAI Interest Group participants,

A thread on the WebAIM list prompted us to start a *Managing Accessibility wiki page* on the WAI-Engage Community Group wiki at:

Will you contribute to it?

Here's some background from the list thread:

W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) has several resources specifically for project managers, including:
* Implementation Plan for Web Accessibility <http://www.w3.org/WAI/impl/>
* Improving the Accessibility of Your Website <http://www.w3.org/WAI/impl/improving>
* Involving Users in Web Projects for Better, Easier Accessibility <http://www.w3.org/WAI/users/involving>

WAI will soon start revising some of these resources to provide updated guidance for project managers, which we plan to complete within the next year. As always, we'd love help! If you might be interested in contributing to that through a WAI Working Group, let's chat.

Is anyone interested in *sharing your wisdom, experience, tips, etc.* in a format that's a easier to bookmark than e-mail threads? To get going on that now, we started a *Managing Accessibility wiki page* on WAI-Engage at:
Anyone can read it, and anyone can sign up to edit it. (Instructions at <http://www.w3.org/community/wai-engage/wiki/About_WAI-Engage>)

The wiki page is an opportunity to share guidance beyond an accessibility mailing list. It'd be great if folks would contribute to it. :)
