ACPA strives to provide an inclusive convention environment that meets the needs of all its members. This Web page is an ongoing effort to provide resources to our members on what accessible accommodations will be available throughout the convention. Our main goal is to provide as many resources as possible to our members about accessibility issues to prevent the need to self-disclose their (dis)ability.
Information about accessibility and accommodations on-site will be available at the Hospitality area located in each convention property.
This Web page is constantly updated so if you feel there is anything that needs to be added, please contact the Access Chair, Deborah Casey.
