ACTION ITEMS IN PROGRESS / PENDING:

In the first half of the 17/18 cycle, the ASCLA Accessibility Committee met via teleconference once (on July 19) to introduce the team and talk about goals for the year. The first project, which was completed at the end of the calendar year, was to update the Resource Guides on the ASCLA webpage. https://www.ascladirect.org/resources/

This first project was timed to coincide with the migration of the ASCLA website to the new format. The Assembly is meeting in person at the Midwinter meeting in Denver on Friday, February 9th. The meeting, which is open to the public, will feature a discussion about possible next projects, focusing on our role implementing the Task Force Report on Conference Accessibility. Further potential projects will include resource evaluation and other ways to support the ASCLA strategic plan.
