Forum members will be meeting at the June 2002 meeting in Washington, DC, to discuss current developments and direction regarding implementation of accessible electronic and information technology under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. The program includes guest speakers, panel sessions, and updates on Forum activities and events.

The Accessibility Forum is dedicated to being the major voice for long-term solutions in fulfilling the promise of Section 508. The Forum is the only setting where all of the relevant Section 508 stakeholder groups are assembling. Forum members are working toward a common understanding of the accessibility standard and how best to implement that standard to the benefit of all stakeholder groups. On-going discussion and collaboration among its members result in the initiation and completion of projects designed to provide specific direction toward successful understanding and implementation of Section 508. The June Forum is a continuation of that ongoing effort.

Panel sessions include how both non-federal segments and federal agencies are responding to Section 508, and on 508 and the Web. Each discussion will include time for Q&A. There will also be a presentation on Microsoft accessibility efforts and the economic challenges faced by industry.

By tuning into the web cast, viewers will be able to stay apprised of Forum activity and provide input on Forum issues and direction of effort and resources. A process will be set up for web cast viewers to send their questions and comments to the Forum during the discussion panel Q&A sessions.
