I could not have said it better, Amy! It’s clear the demand for training is far-reaching and I’m so grateful to Jess for jumping head-on into this fray. I’m happy to help, too. Let’s spend some time exploring this at CATO’s next meeting.

Woohoo! Great job Jess for your awesome coordination, facilitation, presentation and all around enthusiasm for this crazy difficult process we've embarked upon! The attendance is amazing but also shows that obviously everyone working at state agencies is feeling the urgency of meeting Policy 188 and kudos to you for being the one-woman voice out there this year giving them some answers.
Hopefully there is a good response to your survey of volunteers, topics, etc. I'm IN to help with future presentations as needed/appropriate.
Have a great trip!!

The final webinar was offered yesterday. Below is the email I sent registered attendees (I'll share the feedback survey results once I'm back from vacation).
People have been asking if I'll keep this up. Right now I'm saying not right now - as colleges quiet down in summer, but also because I need more assistance. Amy did a great job managing the chat for me a number of times (THANKS AMY!), but if we do more webinars I'd like to have a variety of presenters and I'd like to be more thoughtful about testing platforms and coordinating the delivery (very hard to present and give tech support and mute the fools that turn their mics on).
Anyways... I thought you all might find it interesting how far this series made it. I know in a number of cases one person would register and gather folks into a conference room, so the total number of attendees is probably underestimated.
This list is taken from the webinar with the highest registration (MS Word), so not all of the agencies are represented - I've also had FEMA, DNR, Conservation, a lawyer from the Disability Rights Bar Association, a fair number from King Co library systems.. it's sort of bonkers:
Dept of Ecology
Everett Community College
Green River College
The Evergreen State College
WA State Dept of Services for the Blind
Pierce College Fort Steilacoom
Shoreline Community College
Spokane Falls Community College
WA Dept. of Health
Walla Walla Community College
Washington Student Achievement Council
Bates Technical College
King County Election
Seattel Central College
Bellingham Technical College
Big Bend Community College
Columbia Basin College
Dept of Services for the Blind
Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
DSHS Division of Child Support
Office of Financial Management
Office of the Insurance Commissioner
Renton Technical College
Tacoma Community College
Washington State Department of Transportation
Western Washington University
Whatcom Community College
Clover Park Technical College
Dept of Labor & Industries
Edmonds Community College
Employment Security Department
Franklin County Elections, WA
Grays Harbor College
Kent School District
Lake Washington Institute of Technology
Lower Columbia College
Pollution Liability Insurance Agency
WA State ESD
Wa State OPD
Washington State Department of Revenue
Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs
Washington State Health Care Authority
Washington State School for the Blind
Washington State University
Washington Talking Book & Braille Library
Wenatchee Valley College
Yakima Valley College
Below are the webinar materials from the full line-up of Spring Accessibility Webinars.
Before I say thanks and goodbye, I want to say that I'm overwhelmed with the level of interest and support. The average number of people registered for each webinar was 195 and we had attendees from at least 67 different agencies/institutions! This was by far my biggest and broadest audience and I thank you all for being such a patient one. You had great questions, even better resources, and no one inadvertently shared any juicy gossip. 😉 Maybe next time...
If anyone is interested in collaborating with me to offer future webinar series, I'd be happy to plan another. I think we can get a better variety of voices and topics with more folks involved on the planning end. Having this expand beyond our community and technical college system has also given us a welcomed and new perspective, and hopefully this is just the start to increased collaboration and resource sharing.
Last, I'd really appreciate your feedback as I continue to improve my practice for future webinars. If you could be so kind as to complete this short survey<https://goo.gl/forms/YjPMdWTmJztajiy72>, it would be very much appreciated.
