Project Description: 

For the NCD, New Editions provided research and meeting planning support services for the National Disability Summit on Disability Policy 2010. This landmark event marked the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and brought together over 400 stakeholders from across the country to provide input for a new policy agenda. In preparation for this meeting, our team of researchers prepared 10 working papers identifying significant policy accomplishments and emerging issues and challenges for each topic area. The following lists the paper topics, providing a link to each final report:

The policy papers served as the foundation for developing a meeting agenda and were made available to participants prior to their arrival for the summit.

We also provided the full range of meeting planning support, working in collaboration with the NCD planning committee to identify, select and invite participants representing diversity across a number of demographic characteristics including age, geographic location, disability, race/ethnicity and areas of expertise. New Editions meeting planners secured and managed an accessible meeting location and provided all meeting support such as interpreters and other accommodations, audio-visual, programs and handouts.
