Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

The Director is pleased to announce the recharter of the Accessibility

Kirkpatrick (Adobe). The primary team contact is Michael Cooper (0.35 
FTE), along with Shadi Abou-Zahra (0.20 FTE), Shawn Lawton Henry (0.05

previous charter are required to re-join the group because this charter 
has a new deliverable in scope.
