ADA Online 2020 logo

The Great Plains and the Great Lakes ADA Centers will be continuing our popular webinar series throughout the month of October

From April through July this year we offered ADAOnline2020, representing a series of sessions that were originally slated to be presented at the 2020 National ADA Symposium in Kansas City, MO May 10-13, 2020. Due to the current pandemic, the Symposium was cancelled, but knowing how important the learning that occurs at this event is for many, the Great Lakes and Great Plains ADA Centers developed a scaled-down version of the Symposium, which was offered “virtually”.  This series proved to be very popular.

The current pandemic has forced us to cancel our normally scheduled fall conference. Instead, this October (and part of September) we will be bringing back this series offering a chance for ACTCP members to earn their needed Foundation credits online. All of the Foundation courses that are not readily available as web courses will be offered in this series free of charge. These sessions are open not just to those enrolled in the ACTCP but to anyone who wants to learn more about the ADA. While sessions are free, to participate, you will still need to register for each session at the adaonline2020 website (linked below)


We hope that you will join us and engage with our speakers as they present this information “virtually.”

This program is designed as a springboard to enhance an individual's existing knowledge base or facilitate continued learning regarding regulations and trends under the ADA.


ADA Legal Webinar Series
This program is designed for individuals who have a working knowledge of the ADA and are familiar with its basic elements. Sessions are intended to support continued learning and focus on the knowledge that has been gained since the implementation of the law in terms of how the federal agencies and the courts are interpreting the law and subsequent regulations.

Accessible Technology Webinar Series

Emergencies and disasters can be particularly concerning for people with disabilities. Successful outcomes for people with disabilities in disasters will depend on the how inclusive the plans are.
