What we’re about

Accessibility Twin Cities is designed to connect and support individuals who work in – or are even simply interested in – the field of digital accessibility and accessibility testing for organizations, businesses, and government.  Our goal is to give accessibility aficionados a chance to meet, share resources, and learn together.  Content may be supplied through presentations given by members or guest speakers.

Meeting Content
Meetings will cover a range of topics that are pertinent to digital accessibility and testing.

This may include:

  • Accessibility standards and laws
  • Usability standards
  • Testing techniques
  • Client interaction/management
  • Working in team testing environments
  • Career development

Our Members
Anyone is free to join this MeetUp, but the group will reach out primarily to individuals who work with or are interested in digital accessibility as it pertains to users who live with disabilities.
