Sharing Some Good News

I thought I would write a quick post to share a couple of pieces of good news.

This week I found out that I was chosen to give a presentation at the virtual Americans with Disabilities Act Symposium in early May. I submitted two proposal ideas; I don’t yet know if one or both of them were selected for presentation. I’m supposed to find out in a couple of weeks.

This is exciting news, because the Symposium is the biggest conference of people in the disability field. My presentation could be seen by a hundred or more people from across the disability field. That kind of exposure could help me find the kind of career change I’m hoping to find this year.

A few days ago I found out I was accepted to join the ADA Training Leadership Network. I will complete the course work during the month of February. Then, I will be part of the group. Membership will give me access to all kinds of training resources and a network of others who regularly train people on the ADA.

I’m excited about this, because I believe every certification helps. Since I do lots of training, I have wanted this for a couple of years.

Access to the training materials will also be very helpful for me, because I should be able to use the resources to have access to training materials that have photos. While that may sound strange, I know sighted people, for the most part, really need visual stimulation. Since I can’t see where I’m placing photos in my presentations, I don’t include them. But I know to be a more effective trainer, I need to include more visuals in my presentations.

These are little things. But as the cold, wet winter continues, it’s nice having bit of good news to think about.

I'd love to hear from you.
