Event Promotion and Accessibility Statement

Persons with disabilities, needing accommodations to attend this event, should contact (name/department) at (phone #) three weeks in advance of the event.
Accommodation Request Timeframe
A reasonable advance notice of at least 3 weeks should be given by anyone requesting accommodations.

You may wish to consult with the ADA/504 Coordinator regarding auxiliary aids and services, resources available, agency referral, and the determination of the appropriateness of accommodations.
