MMC +T Accessibility Information

Accessibility

ASAE is committed to providing an outstanding experience for all participants. We strive for full access to the activities of these events based on an awareness of participants' needs and appropriate planning. Accessibility accommodations relating to mobility, hearing, vision, or other areas may be provided.

We ask that requests for reasonable accommodation be made at least two weeks in advance of the event via the registration process. Onsite requests will be accommodated to the best of our ability; however, available resources may be limited.

Awareness

ASAE is partnering up with HD Sunflower USA Corp - a global network, to help increase education and awareness surrounding non-visible disabilities. Stop by the main registration desks onsite, if you would like to grab a Hidden Disability Sunflower lanyard or wristband, to help encourage inclusivity, acceptance and understanding. This simple tool is for sharing that an individual may have a hidden disability voluntarily, or showing support to the cause. Learn more here.
