Testimonials

I don't typically think of sessions in terms of "favorites," but this was my favorite session. I learned and laughed, pondered and pontificated, mused and mumbled my way to a better understanding of the ADA and 504 requirements and how they affect AmeriCorps programs. Elizabeth is a great presenter--smart, well-spoken, and funny. The only thing I would change about this session is moving it earlier in the schedule so that more people could attend. Or, better yet, make it a keynote/plenary.” - attendee, AmeriCorps disability workshop
