This 90-minute webinar will include a basic introductory overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) nondiscrimination requirements for outdoor recreational providers and operators including tips, tools, and resources for best practices.
Participants will also gain a greater understanding of the disability market including the many ways people recreate today.
Presenters will share and use real-life operational examples and experiences to illustrate some successful and some not-so-successful instances. With this information comes confidence in fostering an ongoing inclusive business model to create not only ADA compliance; but a clear advantage over your competition. Most people desire outdoor recreation for a variety of reasons. Does your program or business model welcome and strive to make “the Great Outdoors” accessible to ALL customers? How can I be better prepared to welcome and make “the Great Outdoors” accessible to patrons with disabilities? Who and where can I go when I have questions? This session will begin to provide some answers to these questions.
Gain a greater awareness and understanding of the general disability population and market.
Learn the basic nondiscrimination requirements, obligations, and compliance issues under the ADA.
Explore real-life experiences and examples of inclusive policies and procedures providers and operators have successfully implemented.
Acquire disability and ADA-related resources, tools, and tips for further technical assistance and staff training.
