Transportation Accessibility Institute

CTAA will be hosting a day long Transportation Accessibility Institute at our Community Transportation EXPO in Oklahoma City on May 22. The Institute will provide participants with guidance and training on strategies and techniques to support and enhance accessibility of transportation programs and networks, and inclusion of older adults, persons with disabilities and their caregivers in transportation planning, oversight and operations. The Institute will also offer the participants to share innovative accessibility and inclusion practices and techniques among themselves.

Communities will need to form teams, with representation from older adults, persons with disabilities, caregivers, transit programs, health care providers and local governmental or planning organizations. Teams will need to submit applications, by April 12. Members of selected teams will receive two nights of hotel accommodations, meals and transportation expenses. The Institute is supported through CTAA’s Transit Planning 4 All Program which is funded by the Administration for Community Living. Participating teams may also be selected for subsequent participation for a Community of Practice through CTAA’s National Transportation Accessibility Center to share and disseminate accessibility and inclusion insights over the next two years.

The First Steps to Defending Your Agency in Cyberspace

Monday, May 22 9:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Every day, it seems like a new organization suffers from a cybersecurity incident. At this point, you might think there’s just nothing you can do about it. But that’s not true! Even as a small agency, you have the power to protect yourself from cybercriminals. To help you out, N-CATT will host a 3-hour forum to introduce foundational cybersecurity concepts and terminology to leaders of small- and mid-sized organizations who may have limited technical knowledge. Following this forum, attendees will have a better understanding of the threat landscape and the nature of cybersecurity and data breach risks to their organizations, as well as an understanding of the first steps they can take to minimize their organization’s risk and exposure. We will have refreshments throughout the morning to power your cyber fight!

All are welcome, no registration necessary.
