I’m en route to Miami for the 2019 National Arts Marketing Project Conference (#NAMPC) where I’ll be presenting A Content Manager’s Guide To Website Accessibility.
Saturday, November 16, 2019 – 11:00am to 12:15pm ET in the Biscayne Ballroom
If web accessibility isn’t already on your radar, it should be. At the heart of accessible design are the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), a central element of a series of web accessibility guidelines. While many of the accessibility standards will include items you’ll never see, such as modifications and updates to the code your websites run on, there are several items that must be addressed on the content management level.
The good news is regardless of technical skill level, many accessibility standards are items everyone can address. This session is designed to teach content managers basic web accessibility principles and the corresponding techniques needed to make sure their content is accessible.
During this session, attendees will:
- Learn how to use free and paid versions of color contrast checkers to make sure color palettes meet accessibility standards.
- Learn how to properly use content headers.
- Properly tag digital photos and images so they provide a meaningful experience for visually impaired website visitors.
If you’re attending the conference, be sure to connect and say hello or set aside some time to talk shop.

Oh Yes, There Will Be Arts Admin Merit Badges
If you are attending the conference then you have one more reason to come find me: a free #ArtsAdminMeritBadge. But don’t wait too long, I’m only able to stay through Sunday afternoon this year so if you aren’t already planning on going to my session, you’ll need to get your Where’s Waldo? groove on and track me down before this sweet SWAG stash is gone.
