Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: Invitation to present virtual sessions on WAI/EO at Accessing Higher Ground - Nov. 16-18

Thank you Sharron for this reminder, and apologies Howard that I have not yet responded.  I would really love to present something at AHG, heck, I have wanted to get to AHG for 5 years now!  The hesitation that Iím having is, my life.  During a recent yearly check in with her cancer doctors, my mother had blood work come back really abnormal, and Iím taking her tomorrow for an appointment with a leukemia specialist at Penn Medicine.  Once we know what her treatment may look like, I can possibly plan my life again and know if Iíd be available to present something virtually at AHG.  I know that you all have done a presentation about EO and our resources in the past, and if we think that is something we should do again, Iím happy to help however I am able.

I just wanted to make a quick push ofr this offer from Howard about AHG. It is one of the loveliest of accessibility conferences. Kind of reminds me of AccessU (grinning)

Anyway, the community is warm and welcoming and they are keen for supporting materials for all levels along the accessibility learning curve. Works in progress are also well received so Daniel, note Howard's hint for another curriculum presentation and Brent it could be a place to preview some of the "Coming Soon" resources. In any case, I noticed there was not much response to the invitation and wanted to give another pitch for the value of being at Accessing Higher Ground.

Cheers all,

Hello All:

I'd like to add some virtual (presented offsite) sessions to the AHG schedule, particularly on WAI/EO resources or on web or digital accessibility in general. I would waive the requirement that virtual speakers need to register for the conference to present.

(Daniel - another session on the WAI curricula would be welcome.)

Let me know if you're interested. The proposal form is at:<>

Covid-19 and the Accessing Higher Ground Conference. We plan to hold an onsite conference in November, 2022, but since it is difficult to predict with certainty the state of affairs at that time we encourage individuals to submit proposals even if they are not sure if they will be able to travel in November.<>
