What we’re about
This group is for web practitioners and other professionals who are practicing or intending to practice in the area of web accessibility and inclusive design practices.
The aim of this group is to provide an open and welcoming face to face forum for accessibility or inclusive design professionals in the digital space.
It doesn't matter if you work for a large organisation, are an independent consultant or just an accessibility advocate. This group is about sharing the knowledge, collaborating and engaging as an accessibility professional basis and staying in contact.
The group is a place where people should feel at ease to share information and knowledge for the greater good of the community. This group is not for networked sales pitches, if you are into that, please go elsewhere.

GREAT DEBATE XI: SEEKING PARTICIPANTS
This year we celebrate our 11th Great Debate and we’d love to have you involved. As we’re holding the event on the 29th February, we’re asking the question ‘Accessibility audits should only happen once every leap year’.~~’~~ Do you believe this to be true? Do you strongly disagree with this statement? Do you just enjoy a good three-minute rant? We’re looking for people to join both the affirmative and negative teams so if you are interested, please e-mail email@example.com.
