The IT Accessibility committee merges the interests and initiatives of The Forum's activities previously referred to as "accessibility" and "digital divide." In so doing, it addresses the broader issues of access as they relate to state and local government migration of information and services to the Internet or other electronic delivery formats.
The Webmasters' Guild was initially formed several years ago to provide a means for those individuals within state and local government that have responsibilities for their agencies Web Sites to share ideas, issues, problems, etc. This remains the purpose of this group. The Guild has monthly meetings between September and May of each year, usually on the first Friday of the month from 9 am to noon. The meetings are dedicated to a single topic of interest to the group. They generally either will focus on a speaker with expertise in the area and/or Guild Members with experiences in this area.
