The National Council on Disability (NCD) is seeking the input of the public, especially Americans with disabilities, to help determine the recommendations and focus of their 2013 Progress Report. The NCD’s progress report helps to inform policymakers on how people with disabilities are doing in the US, developing recommendations of what can be done to achieve the promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The NCD welcomes your ideas.
The NCD’s next quarterly meeting on Tuesday, October 23, from 4:00-4:30 PM EST will have time set aside during the regular public comment period as a brief opportunity to share your thoughts.
