Accessibility Taglines for Events

The McBurney Disability Resource Center recommends using an accessibility tagline on all public information advertising your event.  These statements give people with disabilities relevant information on who to contact for accommodations.

Accommodations statement to include on program announcements and registration materials

“If you need an accommodation to attend this event, please contact (name, event host/coordinator) at (phone number/email). All accommodation requests should be made no less than two weeks before the event. We will attempt to fulfill requests made after this date, but cannot guarantee they will be met.”

Dietary statement to include on registration materials if the event includes a meal

“If you have dietary needs, please contact (name, host department) at (phone number/email).”

Alternative formats statement to include for all publications or handouts related to the event

“This document is available in alternative formats upon request by contacting (name, host department) at (phone number/email).”
