Section 508 Refresh: Changing Web Governance to Reflect Legal Concerns


In January 2018, Section 508 will incorporate the WCAG 2.0 AA (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) as part of a final rule. As these changes may increase institutional liability for inaccessible web content, many institutions are considering changes to web governance to ensure full compliance. Attendees are encouraged to share how their institutions are rising to the challenge of web accessibility compliance.
