Ad-Hoc Committee on Conference Accessibility
The AWP Ad-Hoc Committee on Conference Accessibility develops best practices for general conference accessibility, increases awareness of accessibility to the broader AWP membership, and strategizes solutions for city-specific accessibility obstacles. The overarching purpose of this committee is to establish consistent, open, and productive communication about accessibility at the AWP Annual Conference & Bookfair.
We would like to thank the members of this committee for their invaluable work.
