PLA works to make sure your experience will be a pleasant and accessible one. Here are the features we'll have in place to ensure that the PLA 2022 Conference is accessible to all:
PLA coordinates interpreting services for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. To use the service, interpreter requests should be made when registration opens. Please contact Melissa Faubel Johnson at email@example.com no later than Monday, January 31, 2022.
Based upon availability in each city, PLA maintains a limited number of scooters and wheelchairs on a first-come, first-served basis for attendees that require mobility assistance. PLA offers these scooters on a complimentary basis to be used during regular session hours. For liability reasons, these scooters are for use in the Oregon Convention Center only. Scooter pick-up and drop-off will be at the special assistance counter in registration, located in the Oregon Convention Center. You will be asked to sign-out and return the scooters daily with the attendant. If you require mobility assistance and would like to reserve a scooter prior to the show, we'll begin accepting reservations when registration opens. Please contact Melissa Faubel Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, January 31, 2022, to reserve a scooter/wheelchair. Reservation requests cannot be taken after the January 31, 2022 deadline; however, additional scooters will be available for use during the conference.
Scooters and wheelchairs are permitted on the exhibit floor as long as they are in use at all times. Wheeled carts, however, are not permitted at any time. If you have a medical condition requiring you to use a cart, please bring a doctor's note to the special assistance counter in the registration area.
