Issues related to accessibility of meetings and conferences are always a concern to professionals in our field. AER strives to be a leader in our field in the area of accessibility. The AER Accessibility Committee has been working for the past several years on developing guidelines for making meetings and conferences accessible to all participants.
Participants in this presentation will become acquainted with a series of checklists designed by the committee to help chapters/divisions address issues of accessibility. In addition, guidelines will be provided for making presentations and handouts accessible. These guidelines can be shared with presenters, informing them of the necessary requirements that must be followed to make their presentations accessible.

Vision Outreach, LLC and Chairperson of the AER Professional Personnel Recruitment Committee
Have you looked around a conference room recently? Not at the chandeliers but at the individuals in the chairs? How many of us are over 55? How many are under 30? No need to admit your age, but there is a shortage of vision professionals. The AER Professional Personnel Recruitment Committee published four recruitment brochures in 2013. What is the next step? How are universities recruiting to their programs? Where should recruitment presentations be done, and what should they say? Let's talk solutions and continue to take action.
