July 17, 2014
BBI Chairman, Peter Blanck, will address the National Council on Disability (NCD) in Washington, D.C., to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On July 24th, Blanck, along with other disability leaders, will discuss "New Directions in Disability Policy." The NCD is an independent federal agency charged with advising the President, Congress, and federal agencies regarding policies, programs, practices, and procedures that affect people with disabilities. The panel of Congressional, Administration, and disability policy leaders will help to map for the NCD future disability policy priorities and trends. Among other topics, Blanck will present ideas from his new book "eQuality," about the crucial role of an accessible Internet to enable persons with disabilities to participate in all aspects of daily life.
