Subject:        W3C membership and Director have approved the re-charter 
of the WCAG Working Group



Dear WAI Interest Group,
 
Great news for Accessibility: the W3C membership and our Director, Tim 
Berners-Lee, have approved the re-charter of the WCAG Working Group! 
 
However, under the new charter our name has officially changed. We are now 
the Accessibility Guidelines Working Group or AGWG...:-)
 
Please consider having your organization join the W3C and the new AGWG. 
The W3C has put out a Call for Participation in AGWG. We need all the 
expert help we can get building WCAG 2.1, and improving our resource docs 
and techniques. 
 
Please see the following information about how to join the group: 
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/participation 
 
Our new public home page is at: https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/  
 
Happy Friday!
