ADA Compliance and Website Accessibility: Building a Better User Experience Online

Join the Augusta Metro Chamber, Ann Campbell-Kelly from Walton Options, Mike Parsons and Rick Donaldson from Mass Media Marketing to learn if your business is following the federal law to make your website ADA compliant.

It is a federal law that your website must be ADA compliant, but most local businesses are unaware of this legal requirement. Rick and Mike will discuss the law, the real-life consequences if sued, how to avoid it and will be offering solutions. Ann Campbell-Kelly will present from the point of view of the website host and from the perspective of those individuals who are disabled or serve the disable.
