Accessible Schools December 1, 2011 2:30 - 4:00 (ET)
The 2010 ADA Accessibility Standards and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standard apply to many types of schools in the public and private sectors, including primary, secondary, trade schools and colleges and universities .

Accessible Golf Courses January 5, 2012 2:30 - 4:00 (ET)
The 2010 ADA Accessibility Standards and the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standards address the design and construction of golf courses. Technical provisions address teeing grounds, putting greens, teeing stations at driving ranges, course weather shelters, golf car rental areas, bag drop areas, and course toilet rooms. Special criteria permit the use of a “golf car passage” in lieu of the traditional accessible route to connect these spaces within the boundary of the course. This session will review these specifications and highlight the impact on newly constructed, altered, and existing golf courses.
Accessible Courthouses and Courtrooms Feb 2, 2012 2:30 - 4:00 (ET)
The design of courthouses poses challenges to access due to unique features, such as courtroom areas that are elevated within confined spaces. Technical provisions addressing these issues are included in the 2010 ADA Accessibility Standards and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards. This session will review requirements in the standards that address access to courthouses and courtrooms, including secured entrances, judges’ benches, jury boxes, witness stands, clerks’ stations, bailiffs’ stations, spectators galleries, holding cells, and other spaces.
