The ADA National Network invites you to attend the premier conference on the Americans with Disabilities Act, designed to provide comprehensive information on all areas of the ADA.  

The 2020 National ADA Symposium will be held May 10 through 13, in Kansas City, Missouri at the Downtown Loews Hotel

The conference brings together a wide range of professionals including architects and code officials, human resource specialists, health care providers, state and local government officials, service providers, and disability advocates to get the latest information on ADA compliance, best practices and implementation strategies.  

This conference is designed for professionals who are involved in direct ADA implementation.  You will receive information that is current, practical, useful and targeted to your specific needs.  In fact, 95% of past ADA Symposium attendees surveyed reported that they gained knowledge and skills that they could use in their profession and communities. 98% of attendees surveyed said that they would recommend the conference to a colleague.
