The National ADA Symposium is an annual conference on the Americans with Disabilities Act and related laws.

Department of Justice, EEOC, US Access Board and the US Department of Labor. The ADA Symposium is a national initiative of the ADA National Network and is hosted by the Great Plains ADA Center.

The 2021 National ADA Symposium will be a hybrid event. The on-site conference will be held July 25-28, in Phoenix, Arizona followed by a virtual conference Aug 2-5, 2021. This session will provide a brief history of the ADA Symposium, and its impact on ADA implementation. We will also cover the 2021 ADA Symposium session schedule and content, speakers, and conference activities. We will discuss the decision to offer a hybrid conference and considerations in choosing between the on-site and virtual events (or how to attend both!)
