ACCOMODATION COORDINATION OFFERED FOR NERGC 2013
Are YOU already registered for NERGC 2013 but wonder how your hearing, visual, or physical mobility needs might impact your conference experience? Were YOU thinking of registering but wondered what accommodations might be available to help you participate fully in the conference? Are YOU wishing you could attend but are not sure how you would manage? Though our conference site and hotel were chosen to meet the diverse needs of our genealogical community, there are still challenges. Dr. Pam Roberts, a physical therapist, advocate, community accessibility consultant, and genealogist, has offered to consult gratis with those who may have questions about the physical layout, anticipated audio-visual set up, distances and potential barriers to full access and participation at our conference and hotel facilities. Pam invites you to be in touch with her directly to discuss your questions and needs. It is best to contact her prior to the conference by email at drpamNERGC@charter.net or call 860 428-2406. After the conference begins, the Hospitality table in the registration area will have information and the ability to refer you to Pam for assistance.
