AHEAD 2016: Enhancing Programming & Access
Universal Access and Environmental Responsibility
AHEAD and pepnet 2 are committed to creating a conference experience that models universal access, environmental responsibility, and unparalleled professional development. Both organizations provide opportunities for professional development to those who work to assure usable, sustainable, and inclusive higher education environments for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors with disabilities and who believe society is enriched by difference.
To enhance full access and maximize environmental responsibility, we prioritize early planning and the use of technology in the delivery of fully accessible, usable program materials. In lieu of receiving paper handouts onsite at the 2016 Conference, attendees will access all presentation handouts in advance via Internet download beginning two weeks prior to the event. This affords attendees the opportunity to access presentation materials in the format of their choice for sessions they plan to attend, as well as those they cannot fit into their schedules, well in advance of the conference. All registrants will be provided with easy-to-understand-and-implement instructions for accessing all presentation support materials.
While providing the advantage of universal access for each attendee, this approach greatly reduces the burden on presenters and the environment created by printing handouts – many of which go unused. The Conference organizers thank all presenters for their early planning in support of these goals of full access and environmental responsibility.
The 2016 Program Chairs and Committees along with the AHEAD and pepnet 2 staff and leaders are committed to consistently improving your experiences and look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis this summer!
Scent- and Smoke-Free
In an effort to provide the most comfortable experience possible for all attendees, the Conference organizers ask that attendees refrain from the use of scented products during all events and observe that all events are smoke-free. All indoor areas of the Conference are strictly smoke-free.
